Den VITA #2. "Ornaments / Frida Kahlo"
Frida Kahlo. b. 1907.
”Ornaments” are Kahlo’s jewelry on the outside and the corset & iron bars she wore under her clothes. Long skirts to hide one leg shorter and smaller because of polio she had at 6. A life laced with pain maybe lightered by the vivid colors and ornaments in her paintings.
Size: 20,5 x 19,5 cm
Den VITA project was to work on single, white, second hand objects and be inspired by women artists, crossing generations and artistic bransch. Some activists, some early pioneers, some simply demanding to be recognized for their work. But according to me, all feminists despite rejection of the term. Each object is one of a kind & handpainted!
