My new updated print direction, a sneak peek of the first step 🙂 will be layered by screen printing, embellishments, colour hand painting and embroidery worked in to the design. Placement and scale will be quirky, unexpected and tell a narrative
This print is an original, complete with my own sketches, painting and photography. This print will be a part of a series of textiles for my collection which will serve to represent different aspects of frida kahlo’s life. This print in particular represents her sexuality and the challenges she had embracing her self as a woman. Love was a tricky topic for her, she experienced so much pain in her life- physically, emotionally, etc. Here I explore the impact on this on her sexual life and the varied and intense interactions she experienced, perhaps due to the for-mentioned history she had.
