Frida Kahlo Bracelets3

 

Frida Kahlo

These designs are adaptations from Frida Kahlo paintings. Frida was

a noteworthy Mexican artist (July 6, 1907 Ė July 13, 1954).  Because of

a serious injury suffered by a trolley car, she spent much of her adult life

in bed, gazing at a mirror on the ceiling.  She paintied many self-portraits from the mirror.

These images often included elements from her large home and indoor gardens --including

the monkeys in her indoor garden,  depicted in several of the bracelets. She is a strong feminist figure.

Katrina is a typical Day of the Dead Image. Katrina is a floozy, dressed with a plume,

adapted from the famous drawings by Posada, who popularized the Day of the Deat
in Mexico in the early 20th century.

I turned to hear and the laughte continued.

Alice Warder Seely's mixed Indian, Spanish, and Anglo heritage reflects the rich cultural diversity of New Mexico. Seely is the step daughter of Navajo artist Ha-So-De (Narciso Abeyta), "The Gaugin of American Indian Art".  Her maternal grandmothers, Eleanor Brownell and Alice Howland, came to Santa Fe from Philadelphia in the 1930's.  Seely's paternal grandparents were from the small Spanish village of Guadalupita in Northern New Mexico and were descendents of San Juan and Comanche Indians. Her great grandfather is pictured in the original Pony Express poster. Seely's  half brother and sisters, are recognized Navajo artists. Alice's biological father, William Warder, was a New Mexico muralist and landscape painter.

Because of Alice's Native American heritage and her having grown up with a Navajo step-father, Alice is familiar with Native American Designs.  She is not a registered Native American and her jewelry and textiles are her own adaptations and designs.   Many designs are contemporary and are not influenced by southwest images.
