At the Burton Barr Library in Central Phoenix, I will have a new oil painting on display for the ” Expressively Frida” Exhibition.
The Exhibition will be up from July 5th 2014 to August 3rd.
The Frame by Frida by Rachel Goede Tempe AZ artist
Frida was for the most part, a self portraitist who documented the sad times in her life. Many of her paintings were narratives. “The Frame” however, is joyous. Every color has a meaning, the birds and flowers all have meanings. According to Frida, it’s good to be a weird young woman.
Here are the meanings of some of the colors in “The Frame.” Here is my interpretation of Frida’s color as listed on www.fridakahlofans.com
Magenta – Aztec. Old TLAPALI blood of prickly pear, the brightest and oldest
Cobalt Blue – electricity & purity love
Red – blood, color of life?
Leaf Green – leaves, sadness, science, and symbol for Germany
Yellow – Part of the sun and of joy
Dark Blue- tenderness or distance
See you at Burton Barr Library!~Rachel
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”~Frida Kahlo
