FRAGMENTED FRIDA, a solo show by Andrea Dantas - Submitted by Christine Renee Miller
April 6, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
FRAGMENTED FRIDA tells the story of the unbroken spirit of a broken woman. This timely piece explores the life, and seeks to capture the essence, of the audacious artist, Frida Kahlo, who overcame seemingly insurmountable adversity that included being relentlessly bullied as a child, surviving a near-fatal bus accident in her teens that left her shattered physically and emotionally and then falling in love with a womanizing genius that would betray her in the worst way.
The work presents a complex Frida as revolutionary, provocateur, activist, self-reflexive painter and as a woman in need of love and validation. Frida was a Mexican Jewish bisexual feminist, four strikes, even in the most progressive times. “Fragmented Frida” taps into the tremendous resilience that allowed this titanic figure to examine her own life and suffering via the canvas so it could be forever preserved as art.
