BERMUDA by Katherine Sandoz

In 2014, Sandoz traveled to Bermuda to celebrate the marriage of her brother.  She did not know that she would be staying in the home where Georgia O’Keeffe had stayed in the late 1930s.  She did suspect that the lush island situated in the Sargasso Sea formed on the edges of calderas would capture her heart and imagination.  From the minute she landed, Sandoz saw the paintings of the sky, sea and land of Bermuda.  

Each work represents the artist engaged in defining the shapes, colors, textures and experience of space one might know in traversing the island.  She delights in the materials she uses - water and pigment.  Water and pigment, mixtures of land and rock, are also essentially the subject of her works.  Without having spent considerable time studying O’Keeffe or her works, in the two years of developing the series, Sandoz discovered a new and surprising compatriot in the “mother of American modernism”.  Through drawing, painting and stitching “bermuda” pieced works, her interpretation of the colors and shapes of the island, Sandoz imagined seeing through O’Keeffe’s eyes as well as the eyes of other adventurer-explorers who have been drawn and attached to this very special part of the world. 

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.  - Georgia O’Keeffe
