Frida Kahlo spreading her flowers into the universe

performance piece by Uta Brauser,

with Jetaime Pizarro and Amber Lee

Frida expressed herself very strongly in her paintings,  although considered surrealist,she painted her own realities.

The flowers to remain in the universe symbolize the female, a delicate soul, hoping for permanence and unperishable presence.

Uta’s live action painting creates a Frida portrait, then a wheelchair Frida adds the flowers to the painting, the “super flower Frida” will spread more petals into the area, room and audience.

performed at the  UP NYC  performance art festival April 21 at Paper Box, Brooklyn.
