PROCESS

Frida Kahlo is an artist who has always inspired me. Not only because of her art, but also because of her tough life. The way she describes her emotions, as well as frustrations has a very special touch to it.

When I first heard about LAYERED, I was already working on my Frida Kahlo series. I immediately thought that this could be the perfect piece of work to represent me in Chicago. My initial working process changed after I found out about this show’s name. In this piece, you can see how I combined some different techniques and layers through image transfer, painting and fusing. Once I had my first layer of glass completed, I decided to cut many long pieces and display them on top of the first piece. Each of the cut-outs has some of her very inspirational and motivational quotes of Frida Kahlo on it. As an artist, my personal canvas has always been glass!”
