Frida Kahlo Inspired Painting by k Madison Moore


Frida's Kitchen - Frida Kahlo
Forever Frida Series

16 x 20 x 2  Frida Kahlo Oil painting on Canvas

Another fine painting to add to my Forever Frida Series.
Frida and Diego spent a lot of time cooking and making their
meals together in their kitchen in the blue house. 

I love painting rooms and environments for Frida in the manner
that I would like for her. My inspiration came from the photo below of
their kitchen. Frida loved all kinds of decorative pots and dishes so I have
added a lot of different shapes and designs and many of her still life paintings
that were just perfect for a kitchen with all the fruits and veggies and one of
her of course looking over things. So cute that they actually have their names
 on the walls to signify just who's kitchen it is.

She loved yellow and blue and lots of different colors as you can see in her
choice of kitchen set with reds and greens and yellows against the wicker.
Looks like they may be getting ready to sit down and have what ever food they
cooked in the bowls on the table. Hum...wonder what it is?
Enjoy

Studying Kandinsky By k Madison Moore Fine Art Oil Painting


Studying Kandinsky

Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky

14 x 18 Kandinsky Oil Painting on Canvas

©kMadisonMore wil not be present on painting)

Just love getting into painting with Kandinsky, especially with his
red compositions. My signature color is red, just love it. In this painting
I am also expressing that in our daily lives, kids in schools and colleges
and most businesses, it is technology world with computers, cell phones
and tablets. 
What about the ever forgotten idea of books? Does anyone take
the time anymore to actually pick up a book and read it?  Do you own one?

There is still nothing like the feeling of the paper pages with words and photos
relaying a story. Technology is great but so were the simple times when we all read
books. Someone was here "Studying Kandinsky" maybe using this computer a bit
but also reading books. Love to include them in my paintings. Enjoy!




Commission Projects Welcome


Kandinsky


Along with Piet Mondriaan and Kazimir Malevich, Kandinsky is considered a pioneer in abstract art, undoubtedly the most famous. He was a synaesthete who could, quite literally, hear colors. This effect of color was a major influence on his art, and he even named some of his paintings "improvisations" and "compositions" as if they were works of music and not painting. Works by Kandinsky have been recently sold for as much as US$25 million. Probably the largest collection of his paintings may be seen in the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

Mens Club Oil Painting Inspired by Richard Linder by k Madison Moore



Mens Club - Linder

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

Sold- On it's way to Canada
Thanks MS

16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


Once in awhile I like to paint geared more for my male collectors and fans.
However, if your a Linder fan this could be great for either male or female.
I love his crazy figures, especially of woman and their little bit of sexuality exposed.
Of course I always change things to make them mine but basically the same concept.

Richard Linder worked as an illustrator  for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar Magazines.
He started painting seriously in the year 1952. He held his first one man show in
1954. His style blends a mechanistic  cubism with personal images of robot like
figues, amazons and heroine's, harlequinades of self styled heroes - his artistic
panorama of the unruly 60's and 70's of the both century.

His favorite subject was very bazaar woman. Corsets and straps, emphasize
their sexual qualities. He had no hatred of woman and said he felt sorry for them.
"When I dress women in these corsets and contraptions in my painting, it's kind
of a way I see them wrapping themselves up."

His paintings used sexual symbolism of advertising and investigated definitions
of gender roles in the media.
Enjoy

Frida Kahlo Painting by k Madison Moore - The Feminist


Portrait of Frida Kahlo - "The Feminist"
©kMadisonMoore will not be on original painting

Forever Frida Series
16 x 20 x 2 Frida Kahlo Oil Painting on Canvas

I just loved painting this piece. It just went right
from designing to execution and it worked out just
as I intended it to. Just love when that happens.
I am getting to know her face well and enjoy painting her
and about her life. I found this wonderful article about her
being a feminist so I am going to share it with you.
For her time she was just so sassy and independent.
She drank and smoked all the time and didn't mind versing
her opinion and living her life the way she wanted and not
what was "expected" of a woman at that time. I admire that.
I admire her and what she stood for. I admire her as an artist
and all she had  to endure. This is long but worth it.
Enjoy!


Kahlo transformed the word “different” to “normal.” To this day, her work and her legacy attracts artists, as well as diverse groups such as feminists, gays, lesbians, communists, patients, the emotionally hurt and the politically active.

Here are five reasons why Frida is an icon of feminism and freedom:

1. Public bisexuality. Frida took pride in her sexuality. She liked to have both women and men in her bed. What primarily prompted her to have many extramarital affairs was Diego’s infidelity and his incapability of remaining sexually loyal to her. Eventually, the couple ended up having an open marriage. 
Frida openly made love to the women with whom Diego went to bed—such as the American actress,  Paulette Goddard. Diego didn’t have a problem with Frida broadening her sexual 
experiences with women, but he got outrageously jealous of the men she slept with—as Leon Trotsky. 

2. Defying the “female beauty” standards. Frida didn’t care to fit with the norm. She kept her “masculine” features untouched—she didn’t pluck her eyebrows, her mustaches or shave her armpit hair. It is said that she also darkened her eyebrows with a black pencil.
She created her own individual style, especially through her clothing. At the time, when women were keen on wearing tight dresses, Frida wore long skirts and loose shirts with vivid patterns. She braided fabrics into her hair and wore accessories that created a fashion frenzy across the world.Although Frida defied the standards of beauty in society, she’s still considered as one 
of the most attractive women.

3. Defying gender stereotypes. Women had few rights during the 1900s. At a time when men were seen as the dominant sex, it was expected of women to be housewives. Frida attended a co-educational school, something that was highly unusual in those days. Isabel Alcantara wrote,
in her book about Frida, “There were only about five girls to 300 boys at the school, and Matilde (Frida’s mother) was outraged at the thought that one of them was to be her daughter.”
Unlike other girls at school, Frida wore her hair parted and pulled back. She also appeared for family photos in men’s clothes.Not only did she dress like men did, but she also challenged 
men in drinking tequila. She continued drinking throughout her lifetime, despite her doctor’s firm disapproval.

4. Exploring intimate female experiences in her paintings. Again, during the 1900s, female experiences were private—but Frida publicized miscarriages, pregnancy, menstruation, operations, breastfeeding, infertility and sexual organs. Her paintings may seem disturbing at first, but they embody the challenges of being a woman.
She painted her self in a surrealist method that has shocked great painters across the world. Andre Breton, the French founder of surrealism, wrote of her work: “I must add that no other painting is so essentially feminine, for she fluctuates between wide-eyed innocence and sheer depravity in order to appear as seductive as possible.”
Her life and her artwork were directly interwoven with one another. Kahlo takes the viewer inside a woman’s mind and heart, and let us examine the fears, passion and suffering that secretly resides within us.

5. Politically active. Although she was born in Mexico, a country of tradition and Catholicism, Frida was an atheist and a proud communist. Despite her frequent health issues, Frida was an active member of the Communist party. She believed that only through Communism can we become human. She was also a Mexican patriot to a fault. She changed the year of her birth, 
from 1907 to 1910, to coincide with the Mexican revolution.
Kahlo had strong political convictions that were inspired by Marxist ideology. She wrote in her diary: “I’m convinced of my disagreement with the counterrevolution—imperialism, fascism, religion, stupidity, capitalism and the whole gamut of bourgeois tricks. I wish to cooperate with the revolution in transforming the world into a classless one, so that we can attain a better rhythm for the oppressed classes.”

Leon Trotsky, the exiled Marxist revolutionary with whom she had an affair, lived with her and Diego at  La Casa Azulfor two years. She also wrote about him: “I love Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao Tse as pillars of the new Communist world. Since Trotsky came to Mexico, I have understood his error. I was never a Trotskyist.”
