Frida Kahlo- HUMMINGBIRD REDEMPTION

“Jessica and I will be visiting the exhibition on 3rd of August with the other seniors from the Coast Centre Oil Painting Group at Little Bay”

FRIDA KAHLO

When I was seventeen, I was informed that I would be crippled and then die if I didn’t have risky surgery. I hadn’t had time to digest this information when I came across the extraordinary visage  of Frida, gazing at me from the newspaper. I cut out the story, continually gazing at her face. ‘The Broken Column’ spoke of my own wounds. I couldn’t believe that a woman from another era had captured my experience. She was  a storyteller of the highest order, unafraid of revealing her pain. She touched death with each stroke of her brush. All the things we commonly run from, she embraced. I had found my heroine.
