In 2017 I had the pleasure of visiting the Heard Museum to see the exhibit Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I am a great fan of her work and I was excited to have this exhibit coming to Phoenix.
I was able to see one of my favorite paintings, the one above, it's titled "The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Myself, Diego, and Señor Xolotl". This painting has many layers of expression, the more you look at it, the more it draws you in. There's a very spiritual driven connective quality.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I am a member of the art collective called The Phoenix Fridas. We incorporate our inspiration from Frida Kahlo in our work. In 2017 I collaborated with a fellow member, Anita Leach. We created a "Frida Glamour Vest"! I did the bead work and Anita created the vest. Check it out!
