Frida Kahlo paper doll The Bride collage
Why Frida Kahlo fascinates us so much? because she had a very strong character? because she had a very specific artistic identity? because she has suffered so much and yet has continued to create?
Frida Kahlo paper doll collage, 2013
Why Frida Kahlo has become an icon?
I don’t know. I like so much her oniric world, her passion, her colors.
I saw some of her paintings in Rome some years ago and her paintings breathe the suffering, the desire for life, awareness of her own talent.
A quote by Frida: I would like to… be able to do whatever I want to behind the curtain of “madness”in This way: I would arrange flowers, all day. I would paint pain, love and tenderness, I would frrely laugh at others, but above everything I would laugh at myself. I would build my world that would be mine and theirs as long as I live…
Sometime I create Frida Kahlo paper dolls.It’s a way to feel the flow of life in a deeper way.
Such as Frida said…Tree of hope, stay strong!
