La ascensión de Frida Kahlo

The Ascension of Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo – a great artist. A complex icon. Often defined as a victim. During her life, and after, others have projected their feelings on her: “She is unfaithful;” “A damaged soul;” “Wild.” At age 18, she was injured in a bus accident that sent a handrail through her back and out of her pelvis. For the rest of her life, she lived with severe pain.

Frida was not a victim. Frida was fierce. She spoke her personal truth. She had a deep passion for living her art and filling the world with love, joy, and sometimes anger.

In México, Frida’s image is omnipresent – on plastic shopping bags, masks, t-shirts, and bobblehead dolls. I wanted to rescue Frida from these “definitions,” these judgments. I wanted her to have some peace. Her work is filled with magic realism. I was inspired to send her flying into a place of serenity and love.

Frida is in flight, ascending from earth into the heavens on a stream of monarch butterflies. Her favorite creatures close. A beloved spider monkey by her side. Her magic carpet guided by parrots. She leaves the Blue House behind. No more ties. No more pain. Flying high and free. She is filled with a quiet joy. She at peace.

Fine Art Paper Finishing

Unless otherwise requested, all fine art paper prints will come with a one-inch border for ease of framing.   If you don’t want a border, let me know.  The art looks beautiful without a border “floated” (placed on top) of matte board. 

There are several options with deckled edge which should be floated on a matte.  Please contact me to discuss the options.

Canvas Stretching

I print on two types of canvas, matte finish (an elegant, smooth flat finish) and gloss finish (shinier and reflective).  In general, I prefer the matte finish.  These can be thin stretched on ¾ inch stretcher bars.  They can be hung unframed or framed.  Some pieces can be gallery wrapped where the image wraps around the side.  Or the side can be white, black or a complimentary color that I usually choose to go with the artwork.  There are other options.  You can have the canvas stretched over 1.5 inch stretcher bars, a dramatic look. 

Metal Prints

The metal prints have the look of a plexiglass or acrylic print and are more economical.

The Metal Print with a Float Hanger  

The surface white Gloss Metal Prints has a white base to maximize color and contrast. Its high gloss surface provides a metallic look while preserving the white points in an image. Final product should display high level luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

Metal Silver Gloss

The surface has a clear metallic base providing a true metallic look. Higher gloss surface allowing a more silver appearance. Provides a maximum luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

I am happy to provide advice on framing and can help you with this process.  Contact me.  I love to work with my clients!
