WEEK 1 PART 6: Frida Kahlo
I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best. – Frida
Today we’ll do a self-portrait in Frida’s style.
But not trying too hard. Don’t use a mirror. Just muse. It’s not about being Frida on the outside, but on the inside.
Last spring, I made my muse Jocelyn Louise into Frida:
Recall my daughter dressed as Frida Kahlo at SFMOMA:
Since my subjects have always been my sensations, my states of mind and the profound reactions that life has been producing in me, I have frequently objectified all this in figures of myself, which were the most sincere and real thing that I could do in order to express what I felt inside and outside of myself. – Frida
