i am an interested viewer of frida's paintings and did see the movie

if a critic i would say of her subject matter; disturbing but interesting

of herself; life without a voice

of her style; personal anger

of her artwork; how to survive in a machismocratic society

Frida's art doesn't do much for me at all, if anything some of her pieces disturb me when I look at them...

To disturb is to do something pretty significant.

At least for me, if something disturbs me it's b/c it holds some sort of power. or in this case it evokes some sort of power... so much so that it triggers distraught or whatever in me...

I don't think they're disturbing.

I think the best way to describe her paintings is selfish.

Relax? Puh, I'm more relaxed than a Sloth!

I just don't understand the sudden group gang-banging at Tec just because his view on Frida is different.

IT'S ART ... It's like stoning someone because he doesn't like ice-cream, or prefers delicious Sherbet.

And Nelio hasn't been a dick to me, well, directly. So.. Yeah.


So is this a common practice of Soy now? Riot on the next guy who prefers to wear shoes without socks? Or rebels in what isn't the socially norm..

Anyway, yeah, Frida sucks.. Diego? Meh.

Frida's art is not the societal norm...

The criticism that tec had as far as his comments about the characteristics that "one who likes Friday" have are a result of her art's popularity post hollywood depiction...

Frida lived through struggles in the hyper-patriarchal art world of Mexico and abroad. She grappled w/ issues of pain and sexuality in her paintings...

To me, calling that selfish is easy to do.... if one is emotionally retarded...

People have always picked on the guy/girl who thinks differently or has a view that is contrary to what the majority believes in. Take a look at the political/religion forum.

It's the lynch mob mentality and it's common practice in a lot of places, not just this forum.

Frida evokes nothing for me, assuming I don't know her and I'm simply looking at her paintings in an artistic perspective.

I look at Fridas' art.. As art. And my opinion of her is based on what my impression of her art depicts, for me, without any influence of her personal background.
I choose to look at art this way because I don't want to be biased with my own opinion of that painting because this person cut his ear off or had sexual relations with one of his young apprentices.

Of course, I will want to know more about this artist if those paintings do provide some subjective output that grabs me but art, to me, as an artist myself, I also look at stroke pattern, sometimes body/shape proportion, color scheme, visionary compliments, color contrast and personal subjectivity.


I've had multiple people call my art selfish, depressing, overly done. My rebuttal was not to call them emotionally impaired but to actually wonder why their criticism of my paintings were harsh (to me), in the end their perspective was obviously from personal association.
People grow up in different environments and because of that, their associations with paintings, objects, people will be defined on their upbringing. Some people might consider Frida selfish, revolutionary, humble, depressed or unstable. All because of their association with feelings, rhetoric or mannerisms.

No one is socially impaired, wrong or heartless if their perspective of an artist did not create the same stimuli than other people; regardless if they read on, or know about the artists personal problems.

... In my opinion.

Relax, SJ! I'm fully aware of the religion and politics, that's why I avoid those.

Actually, SoyChicano has little moderating than most other forums I've been to, and the moderating here is done a lot differently than most message boards I've adventured to. It's for the best, I assume

I understood that you were implying that liking Frida's art was the social norm... which is what I was responding to w/ that post.

And as far as the rest of your post, yeah.. everyone is entitled to their opinion... and within that discourse of having an opinion on art one can have an opinion on another person's opinion. if that makes sense.

My opinion is that to call her art "selfish" is simplistic... i guess i should have prefaced my other comment w/ "could be a sign" of emotional retardation.

Some people aren't verbally elaborate when it comes to implying what their personal judgments of an artist are, or ANYTHING. lack of, or superior verbal skills does not refer to the level of intellect a person has, the English language, or ANY language is very limited when it comes to transferring what a person actually feels or thinks into words. So basing judgment on simplistic remarks like Frida being "selfish" or not, does not make anyone impaired. *Shrugs

I get what you're saying though; haven't really heard much of Frida with Tec so it was surprising that he didn't like her, lol



EDIT:

Maybe you two should look at a Frida painting together, I want to hear what you both would say.

This would amuse me.

I don't take this personal.

I had a good amount of things to say, but the browser crashed. Maybe it was too much to handle. LOL.

Anyway, yeah, Frida seemed cool when she was the only Mexican artist they taught in high school & college in art classes, but once I learned about other Mexican artists (like the women I stated above) on my own terms, I saw how much the school system tried to brainwash me to think Frida was that great.

Yes, I loved the Frida movie even though my parents hated it. The one thing I loved was the same thing my parents hated about it; the romanticizing of Mexico. If someone were to ask me what a Chicano sees, I would recommend to watch that movie to help me summarize what I or anyone else cannot say by saying a few mere words.

Emotions are expressed by simple words even though they're complex. Every artist uses emotion when they paint. You can feel it through their paintings.

Anyway, to debunk Freedom's argument I will use Andy Warhol as an example by saying (even though I don't believe what I will write) he is a great artist bc he would used many emotions including the pain of living in poverty during childhood which are expressed in the Campbell's Soup Cans paintings and anyone who uses a simple word to describe them could be a sign of emotional retardation.

I used the word selfish so that everyone could understand what I felt through her paintings and why I dislike them.
