Frida Flowers Poster
About Frida and her Love for Flowers
Frida was often wearing flowers and using them in her paintings as a celebration of her national heritage and Mexican pride, their symbolism of fertility and fecundity was also pertinent to Kahlo who was unable to have children herself as a result of the accident in her teenage years. She wore quite a number of flowers—gardenias, dahlias, bougainvillea—to accent her flamboyant Tehuana hairdos and dresses. Other plants are depicted in a small exhibition of her paintings, drawings, and prints which the Botanical Garden has assembled. And so Frida loved to emphasize her mestiza ancestry by wearing traditional Mexican peasant dresses, traditional elaborate hairstyles with braids and flowers, and adorn herself with jewelry. Her exotic appearance showed quite a sensation when she was in New York in October 1938. Frida’s exoticism in the eyes of western people, her peculiar expressive self-portraits with eyebrows that meet and flowers in her hair are things that first come to mind to people when they think about her.
One of Frida Kahlo’s most memorable quotes: “I paint flowers so they will not die.”, she also said very modestly: “I am that clumsy human, always loving, loving, loving. And loving. And never leaving.“
