Real Women dont paint Flowers

Group exhibition by 5 female artists - Forza 9 Gallery, Polis Chrysochous
9 – 23 November 2008

Real men don’t eat quiche and real women don’t paint flowers. At least that’s what some people say. Real men are supposed to eat souvla and serious artists paint abstract forms or themes that need a lot of expertise to understand.
But five local artists joined in an exhibition just to prove the contrary. Irene Athanasiou, Jenny Duerdoth, Anne Empson, Val Stringer and Stephanie Wood joined in a group exhibition to give you a chance to loose yourself in the beauty of flower paintings.
Georgia O’Keefe, one of the most famous female artists of the 20th century whose large scale flowers have become her trademark, proves beyond doubt that flowers are to be taken a serious subject for art. Like a young, talented artist recently put it: “Thanks to O’Keefe we can paint flowers!”.
Stop and smell the flowers – so join us at the opening of the exhibition on Sunday the 9th of November at 7pm or afterwards to admire one of the most beautiful and inspiring subjects in the visual arts: flowers.
