This is the very first sculptural portrait I’ve ever made! It went through a lot of transformations until I was finally satisfied with it 5 years later. I had to learn a lot about the materials I’m using, anatomy and woodworking.
Sculpting Frida Kahlo was a great way to hone my skills, not to mention an exercise in solidarity with her feminist nature. I felt if I were to pick a person of fame to sculpt, she was a great choice as I have a lot of respect for her individuality and fearlessness. Given the times she lived in it was probably incredibly hard for a woman to be so outspoken and unique. She inspires me to not be afraid expressing myself.
I use glass in my work as a symbol of pain or clarity. The hummingbird is the soul of Frida, an object often found in her paintings.
Priced to sell. I use the standard formula to price my work by width x height in inches.
