Painting: “Frida Kahlo, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger" 2013 (100x100cm, acrylic on canvas)
“There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst” Frida Kahlo
Many things have been written about the painter Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón (best known as Frida Kahlo), but this time we let herself talk about her life and her art with these statements…
“I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best”.
“I love you more than my own skin”.
“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”.
“My painting carries with it the message of pain”.
“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality”.
“I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling”.
“I really don’t know if my paintings are Surrealistic or not, but I do know that they are the most honest expression of myself, never taking into consideration the judgments or prejudices of anyone ”.
“When I get out of here there are three things that I want to do… paint, paint, and paint”.
Extraordinary for a woman who wanted to be a doctor in the first place…(and this reminds me that "Sometimes you can find beauty in sadness"…)
Posing with my creation inspired by the painter Frida Kahlo… (“I just wanted to paint a brighter version of Frida Kahlo also assuming the pains implicit in her life”).
