I deconstruct shape and form, with line drawings and paintings of faces. My FRIDA KAHLO portrait series celebrates this artist, her daring energy, her cultural authenticity and yet individuality, standing up as a female.
This is a print on cardstock photo paper, 11″ x 9″
The painting is a mural in Bushwick, Brooklyn NY, part of the Morgan Walls series, organized by Arts in Action Corporation, a non profit for the arts. Uta Brauser is the executive director and coordinator of the mural program.
The original painting is: 12 foot x 10 foot, Morgan Ave x Harrison Place, Brooklyn. Acrylic and spray paint on cement wall. The mural was painted over by a graffiti artist in the claim of public wall space tradition.
This FRIDA KAHLO painting depicts her as the queen of selfies, before the existence of smart phones, therefore she holds a paint brush.
The curated theme was “Selfies the new pop art today”
by Uta Brauser, 2015, 5′ x 4′ Stretched Canvas. Time flux reminds of the time limitation our human life on earth has. The warm embrace with a stone formation bearing a skull image, the old fashioned alarm clock with skull heads and bone fragment images as numbers remind us strongly about the shortness of the moment, the brief period human life has compared to our planet’s history.
