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.

Photography by Christopher Fay

 

 

Photographer Christopher Fay believes recognizing beautiful ART around you constantly is a gift and skill that comes from viewing the world through the Artist’s Eye. The trick is to develop the patience and imagination to recognize it.  From there, each image calls for its own composition.  With the onset of digital photography and many digital photography advancements, new worlds have opened a new age of creating high-quality photographic artwork.  By using various techniques and tools to enhance regular photographs, spectacular results can be achieved in the finished image.

 

Photography by Hope Kahn

 

 

Photographer Hope Kahn uses many different photographic means to capture an image; such as digital cameras, plastic cameras and pinhole cameras. She then applies, a variety of finishing techniques.  Some of the techniques used are historical processes such as Photo Gravure, Cyanotype as well as the use of paper negatives. The common thread in her art is the blending of the realistic into the interpretative – producing a poetic quality to her photographs. Her clients have often called her work “mysterious and otherworldly.”  

 

 

 

Photography by Shalini Nopany

 

 

Photographer Shalini Nopany is known for both black and white and color images of people and places. Her photographs, which radiate with a woman’s sensibility, freeze a moment in time that captures emotions and actions. Her themes have included motion, emotion, and people’s activities in different settings.
