Making beauty: Junko Mori: ‘Beauty is in oddness... because it’s odd, it catches your eye and you start imagining the story by yourself. That’s art itself, the process of artistic thinking’ Taking inspiration from nature, Japanese artist Junko Mori uses her imagination to turn metal into organic sculptural forms. She employs traditional Japanese metalworking techniques including hand-forging steel with thousands of individually cut nails crafted together.

The large, magnified representations of flowers that Georgia O’Keeffe embarked upon in the 1920s became her most famous subjects. In her youth, O’Keeffe had been particularly fascinated by the jack-in-the-pulpit. In 1930, she executed a series of 6 paintings of the common North American herbaceous flowering plant at Lake George in New York. In "Jack-in-Pulpit - No. 2," the plant is set against a pale mauve background, and all four corners of the composition are occupied by green foliage. What strikes you about this color combination?

Roy Lichtenstein | Stepping Out | The Met

"Stepping Out" is marked by Roy Lichtenstein's customary restriction to the primary colors and to black and white; by his thick black outlines; and by the absence of any shading except that provided by the dots imitating those used to print comic strips. Yet beneath the simplicity of means and commonplace subject matter lies a sophisticated art founded on a great deal of knowledge and skill. The male is based on a figure in Fernand Léger's painting "Three Musicians" of 1944, but seen in mirror image. He wears a straw hat, high-collared shirt, and striped tie; the flower in his lapel is borrowed from another Léger painting. The female figure, with her dramatically reduced and displaced features, resembles the Surrealistic women depicted by Picasso during the 1930s.
