This year’s selected artist is
Sarah-Anne Schaude. She transports herself to the world of Mexican painter Frida
Kahlo, who frequently wore traditional
costume, hairstyles and matching
jewellery. The people were captivated by
her vibrant personality, which was
influenced significantly by a serious
traffic accident in early life.
As Sarah-Anne Schaude explains: “Frida’s
whole being – how, in spite of severe pain,
she was still able to work and bring out
what was inside her – is something that I
find extremely impressive and
encouraging at the same time.” She found
inspiration for Frida Teddy bear’s flowers
in the “Flower Basket” painting and
in Frida Kahlo’s self-portrait.
