House of Frida

"All the photo textures (about 100) used for this digital collage painting were taken from The Frida Kahlo Museum - her house and garden as well as the local walls in the surrounding neighborhood of Coyoacán, Mexico City. Frida is quoted in the piece, “La revolución es la armonía de la forma y el color, y todo está y se mueve, bajo una misma ley –la vida–. Nadie está aparte de nadie. Nadie lucha por sí mismo. Todo es todo y uno” ____ “Revolution is the harmony of form and color, and everything is, and moves, under the same law - life. No one is apart from anyone else. No one fights for himself. All is all and one." You will see her blue walls which also include dripping marks and cracks from aging over the years. You will see part of a chair in her art studio and Frida & Diego written and mirrored (found in the garden walls). You will see the conch shell in the small pool of water (with coins attached to dreams) in her courtyard with ferns and palms surrounding it. The bottom of this pool was painted blue so when the light hits it, combined with all the blue walls in the compound, there is a feeling of deep ocean water, which can be both beautiful and troubling. This was Frida's sanctuary - a much needed eden to survive the pain. Her passion exudes from all the color and her quote seems to ask us to choose a different orbit in order to gain more perspective and inclusivity."
