Transcript of What's your story?

What's your story?
How can you know someone from what they draw?
Let's brainstorm what that image tells us about the person whom it represents.
Frida Kahlo, 'My Dress Hangs There,' 1933
Collage and oil painting, 46 x 55 cm
Frida Kahlo, 'My Grandparents, My Parents, and I,' 1936
Oil and tempera on zinc, 30.7 x 34.5 cm
Why Frida Kahlo?
Does she fit in with the rest of the artists we've studied so far?


A multitude of -isms
Everything we've learned is relevant to everything we're going to learn
do you think Frida Kahlo belongs to and
Why do we create family trees?
- To know where we come from
- To remember the people who worked and gave their lives to give us ours
How would you represent your family?
'The Little Deer' (private collection), her self-portrait as a wounded stag.
It is a visual rendering of her personal confusion and a complex explanation of why she was the way she was.
Her head fused with the body of a deer, Kahlo portrays herself with nine trees lined up to her right and lightning striking the distant water.
She is crying. A dry branch lies at her feet.

On a photograph of the painting that Kahlo gave Rivera, she inscribed, 'I am a poor little deer.'
Frida Kahlo, 'The Wounded Deer,' 1946
Oil on masonite, 22.4 x 30 cm
Does she TRY to fit in with the rest of the artists who are part of movements?
Does she create art for others to approve of or for her own expression, identity and relief?
What kind of art does she inspire you to make?
