Portrait imagined and created to embody the values of the Mexican artist. In creating these paintings, Florina Aledo-Perez aims to project Frida Kahlo into all women. Her freedom, her resilience, her passion.
Under the guise of suffering and femininity, these portraits of women retrace the unspeakable. From the carefree flowers in the hair, to the contrasting colours that hide torment. So many silent and deep subjects symbolized through the canvas.
It is a pictorial work inspired by the Mexican tradition without any cultural appropriation. The Frida de Florina come from all over Europe and in their eyes, everyone can recognize themselves. A feeling of uniqueness develops, of cohesion of the glances which are exchanged, in an expressive rainbow.
