The Two Fridas April 14 2017

The Two Fridas, an expression of the artist's loneliness and desperation as a result of her separation from her husband. The Two Fridas are holding hands, both with visible hearts but the heart of the traditional Frida is torn open. The main artery is severed by surgical pincers sitting in the lap of the traditional Frida. The blood stains on her white dress coupled with the ominous clouds in the background serve as a subtle reflection of Frida's inner struggles.
