Little People, Big Dreams: Georgia O’Keeffe

Views:39|Rating:5.00|View Time:8:29Minutes|Likes:2|Dislikes:0早媽早妹不專業親子共讀 《Little People, Big Dreams: Georgia O’Keeffe/喬治亞.歐姬芙》 小Georgia和六個兄弟姊妹在威斯康辛的陽光草原(Sun Prairie, Wisconsin)一起長大。不過比起和手足玩遊戲,Georgia更喜歡觀察大自然。在課堂上,相較於黑板上的數字Georgia更喜歡看窗外的風景,那些景物帶給她更多啟發。Georgia十二歲的時候,她告訴母親自己想做一個藝術家。Georgia開始上美術課程,她的素描/圖形作品很快就成為全班最出色的。後來她又搬到芝加哥和紐約去進修藝術相關課程。住在這些大城市的人因為忙碌都忽略了小處之美,比如說一朵小花。Georgia於是決定近觀小花將它的美放大,讓人難以忽視。不久後,一個知名的攝影師Alfred看到了Georgia的作品,想將這些畫作與世人分享,便幫Georgia辦了畫展。Georgia的作品讓世人驚艷,不過大多數的人都不能理解畫作的意涵,只有Alfred懂得Georgia的想法,因為他也是位藝術家。沒過多久兩人就發現對發是最適合自己的伴侶,於是他們步入了禮堂。在紐約居住時Georgia受到啟發,因此決定將摩天大樓用圖形表現出來,這種看似孩童的畫風展現出了Georgia眼中的紐約。夏天的時候Georgia到新墨西哥旅行,她很快就愛上了沙漠的景致,畫十字架、沙丘,甚至是動物的頭骨,這些東西讓她深深著迷。Georgia熱愛沙漠裡的每塊石頭、每根骨頭,還有每種顏色。她在座落於紅丘間的居所裡天天做畫,沒有任何一個東西對她來說是渺小或平庸的。透過藝術作品,Georgia在世界各地的博物館穿梭,大家都稱她為「現代畫之母」。現在你會發現,只要和Georgia一樣花時間鑽研,就能把平凡的事物變得不平凡。 精簡的內容、平易近人的文字和吸睛的畫作讓這套以人物為主題的童書打破了大眾對傳記類書籍枯燥、乏味的刻板印象。另外,詞句不僅淺顯易懂,作者群還根據讀者的年齡層在用詞及內容上做了很大的修飾,比方說:Maya Angelou在八歲時曾遭到性侵,不過書中用較為適齡的「攻擊(attacked)」來描述當時的情況。還有,現實生活中Frida Kahlo與丈夫在婚姻中遭遇許多問題,風流的Diego甚至與Frida的妹妹有染,但是在《Little People, Big Dreams: Frida Kahlo》一書裡作者用「their ups and downs」簡單帶過兩人的關係,並將重點放在Frida如何克服病痛和困難持續創作的正向精神。除此之外,書中的插畫也充滿細節,值得細細品味,比如說在Frida Kahlo故事的文字裡並未提到她出車禍時是幾歲,但插畫中讀者可以發現一旁的櫥窗裡擺放了18歲的生日蛋糕,是內文和插圖結合的一個絕佳例子。 這樣一套簡單卻富有深度的女性傳記繪本深深擄獲我們母女倆的心。2017年9月共讀完《Little People, Big Dreams: Agatha...
