Weekly artist exploration/journaling series: Week 1 Part 4 ARTIST WORDS #FridaKahlo #arttherapy

WEEK 1 PART 4: Frida Kahlo

We have looked at Frida’s works and have viewed some of videos about her and saturated ourselves by breathing with her and reproducing her.

Now find her words.  Quotes and letters.

I have a large collection of Frida books, but you can find lots of sources online.

I have always been fascinated by an artist’s own words.  I am a huge fan of letters…

… and diaries.

of others, and they would all say: poor thing! she's crazy. (above all I'd laugh at my own stupidity) I'd build my world which while I lived, would be = in agreement = with all the worlds The day, or the hour, or the minute, that I lived would be mine and everyone else's - My madness would not be an escape from "work"

Find a quote by Frida that you resonate with.

Or maybe find a sentence in one of her letters…

Grab your journal and your inspirations.

Write out the quote with watercolour… or with fluidity using coffee or ink or just use a crayon.

Now splash it, mess it up, cry on it, rub it, age it, be in it… Use Frida’s diary pages as inspiration.

 

Tomorrow:

Photos of Frida and remarks by other artists.

Thursday:

Self-portrait.

Friday:
