Emma Gale’s obsession with Frida Kahlo works out great on paper. I love how she draws, colors and adorns the Mexican icon into countless timeless beauties. Born in Sydney, Australia, Emma is a collage artist who is inspired by colors and patterns and embellishments of different cultures. In her works, Frida plays her muse:
I have been mesmerized by her life story from the first time I learned of her in high school. In my artwork she plays my muse. I adorn her in my jewelled neckpieces and dress her in outfits I have dreamed up. Like a little girl dressing up, I play out my own dress up fantasy, inspired by costumes from traditional ethnic peoples to the latest catwalk designers. From bohemian to chic from tribal to gypsy, she plays them all.
