To celebrate a new Georgia O'Keeffe retrospective opening at London's Tate Modern gallery, Petra Collins has directed a short film detailing her interpretation of the canonical 20th century painter's work. The pastel-hued film is an exploration of sharp and soft textures, set in part to a looped recording of O'Keeffe saying, "They could tell you how they painted their landscape, but they couldn’t tell me to paint mine.”

In a short interview with Vogue, Collins explained further how she interpreted O'Keeffe's work: “I really wanted to take her two favorite places and create these spaces for them to sit in, play with, see how their body fits in, and also speak about landscape, how they feel about nature and their body in nature.” Watch the video above, and click here to find out more about the Tate Modern's Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition.
