Three Fridas

   by Tracy Files for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

Inspiration Piece: Two Fridas

Inspiration Artist: Frida Kahlo

I used wood, canvas board and cloth, wire, floral foam, glue stick, paint, rope, polymer clay and wooden dowel, modeling clay. I started sketching my ideas first and then just jumped into using the materials. The Chavant modeling clay was the most challenging as I had not use that before but it was fun to find a way to use it. I created the body of the Frida figure with this, heating and sculpting first then freezing and carving.
