birthing herself: Frida Kahlo

~ a 2009 mixed media on wood given a blue tint for this series dedicated to various aspects of motherhood ~

through pain and grief, she birthed self-portraits depicting her soul...

Frida Kahlo became a mother to her suffering and as a result, a mother to her expression and creativity...
