About this Course
Frida Kahlo is a renound artist whose energetic spirit was in direct conflict with what her body allowed her to experience. She was exposed to various incidents of trauma, beginning early in life and extending into adulthood. Her art appeared to not only provide her both an active connection to living as well as a mirror into her history. She seems to have a fascination with herself and the life events that encapsulate her. Many of her pieces carry a dissociative quality and reflect her own fragmentation at times quite overtly and at other times more subtly. Frida's work may be an expressive window into to the dissociative experience, thereby facilitating increased connection to the experience of separation from ourselves in the context of trauma.
