Under The Sun Of Satan (Detail)

Under The Sun Of Satan (Frida Kahlo)

“Reinvestigating Frida Kahlo’s famous photograph by Nickolas Murray (1937) which graced the cover of Vogue. Kay’s distortion seeks to challenge her reality: one may see her as a saint, someone else would say she was a sinner. Frida is juxtaposed against a page from The Holy Bible and overlaid with primal writings and covered in encaustic wax; metaphors for Absolute Truth. The frame creates a dark and morbid feeling.” (Erika Hirugami, 2015)
