The National Association of Women Artists, Florida Chapter exhibits within the Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery at the Center For Creative Education.  “The Influence of Frida Kahlo on Contemporary Art” inspired NAWAFL artists to use the elements of Frida Kahlo’s work to inspire their own, contemporary artworks.  Our Exhibition Inspiration:  “I paint my own reality.  The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.” Frida Kahlo

 

 

Frida Kahlo’s artistic depiction of her reality was forged through her pain.   She had been crippled by polio at a very early age which severely stunted her right leg.  Later, while studying Medicine (at 18 years old), she was involved in and survived a horrific accident that resulted in smashing her legs (her right one had to be amputated), as well as breaking her back and receiving multiple internal injuries.  Yet she persevered and found her new direction, in life, through her art.  She lived her life unapologetic.  She never pretended to be something other than who she was.  She embraced her Mexican Heritage, she spoke her mind when it came to politics or matters of the heart.  And she painted through her pain.   It is her warrior spirit that resonates with so many women and artists today.
