Frida


14x11 mixed media acrylic collage on matboard using a previous painting of Frida Kahlo that is 8.5x5. This was adhered to the red mat board support with medium paste then an acrylic abstract was cut into equal strips for border mat. The strips were collaged as well for an altogether different look.
C&C welcome

Re: Frida

I like your color choices...very very Frida! It's funny, when I clicked on your post, I expected Frida's face to be one of your book page portraits

Re: Frida

Thanks! Well, she sort of was. Just a mix of various collage pieces and paint.

Re: Frida

there was a reference in the AMAE challenges that had me thinking about Frida quite a bit. finding this work strikes such a strong chord, i feel this is her essence "without" the body. this is her fiery, embracing freedom, the way she owned her world, in a pure form.
an excellent example of the endless measures of humanity a tiny piece of paper can contain, if in the hands of an artist. thank you!

Re: Frida

Thank you so much for your comments. I did photograph an old black and white framed photo of her recently in an antique mall and there were many reflections across the glass. In the photo she had her shirt unbuttoned partially. It's an amazing image and was about 4x3 feet tall. I might paint a watercolor of it. The price was $129 USD.
