2008 Frida Exhibit

This was my favorite. It was absolutely beautiful, painted in both acrylic and oil on wood.


This was a crowd favorite, painted by Carlos Flores. It was totally kick ass. Wish I had painted it!

See my three babies?


This was an actual music box. Apparently it sold the second the curator put it up for display. Eerie, isn't it?


Would it be wrong to put these in my daughter's room instead of Bratz? These were so cool!


This piece was created with collage. Loved the Mayan glyphs.


There is my Frida, throwing up the "W". One lady asked me, "What is a Dickie?" I was like, "Whaaa? Huuh?" She didn't know what Dickies were.


Me and my homie, my siamese soul sista, Amparo. Yeh, I know. We look alike. Hence the name, siamese soul sista.



What a handsome couple!


Raquel called me, "The Artist Formerly Known as Pearmama". LOL


The view outside the gallery. They had lots of jewelry and I wanted it all.


Awesome! I used to do things like this to my Barbies all the time. This particular artist was recreating the horrible accident that crushed Frida's organs and forced her to wear a brace.


A view of the wall. I love my pregnant Frida. She is so lush and beautiful.


Loved this piece, too.


This was painted by my homie Amparo. Lots of blood, sweat and tears went into this piece. She is so talented! I'm so proud of her.


"Frida's Chi-chi's"...need I say more?




Overall, it was a beautiful show. I am so proud of the fact that I got to display my art alongside so many talented people. Just to see the many interpretations of Frida and her life and how it has inspired so many people was touching. Thanks to all my family and friends that came out to see the show. It meant so much...I felt so special! It was an important night for me. It symbolized the end of my ten year hiatus from painting. It feels good. I feel alive...like that little thing that's been missing all these years has been discovered. I can't wait to start on something new.



There is still time to catch the show. Its up until September 13th. You can go to Picture This Gallery's myspace page and see all the works of art in the show.
