About 44.4

In 2014, Georgia O’Keeffe’s Jimson Weed/Flower No. 1 sold at auction for $44.4 million dollars, setting the record for the highest price paid for work by a female artist. This sales record is three times the amount of the previous record, and hasn’t been superseded in the five years since it was set. 44.4 is our number.
It splits, divides, shares, carries and builds.

For practicing Mothers/Artists the balance is delicate. How can we be both mothers and artists? Our energy is siphoned, often spoken for and difficult to keep in our grasp. Mothers/Artists are piecing together time, space, resources, and the cognitive labour to create. How do we simultaneously grow our artistic practices alongside our children in a way that results in our contributions being valued in our community?
These are our questions; this is our conversation.
