TENDERNESS: FRIDA KAHLO IMAGINED

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 5, 4 - 7, 2016

Frida Kahlo is a an emblem of courage, artistry, Mexican cultural pride and political energy. And irrepressible womanhood. Tragically, she was terribly injured in a traffic accident as a child and was almost paralyized for many years. In her fragile condition she yearned to be, and to have, so much. She longed to be strong, to have a rich and vital life.

And In my paintings I imagine her as mighty. She has the physical power to become a jaguar, to turn into her own garden, to fly. She wears all the fanciful outfits she loved. She wished for a child. I imagine her having a child and their shared tenderness.
