Frida and Diego mural

To complete the Frida Kahlo theme and collection I wanted to paint a few portraits or scenes where Frida and Diego are together.

They needed each other and regardless of the tumultuous relationship could not do without each other.

This large painting is on an art truck, (“acrylic on truck”), often parked in Williamsburg BK on Bedford Avenue on the North Side.

I chose the Industry mural theme for Diego as the backdrop because as a communist he stood up for the people, worker rights, and he appreciated the development of the job industry even though he struggled with the capitalist market aspect. The DIA Detroit Institute of Art director did have major objections when Diego painted the factory workers on theses fresco murals, glorifying the work force.

I also  love that the Diego mural represents the world’s first car assembly line built and designed in Detroit, Edsel and Henry Ford.

I deconstruct shape and form, my line drawings and paintings of faces become guides for the interpretative mind.

My Frida Kahlo portrait series celebrates this artist, her daring energy, her cultural authenticity and yet individuality, standing up as a female in a man’s world.

Faces, Interpretative Portraits

My lines take the eye on a journey of imaginary shaping, I interpret character and expression. The line flow also reflects energy and a relationship to our origin of matter.
