Yasmin Hernandez has made this beautiful art piece – specifically for tonight’s FUNraiser — one lucky winner will walk away with this gorgeous piece!

“La bella muerte” (Beautiful death), 2011
Yasmin Hernandez
Acrylic on canvas
24” x 18”

Portrait of Frida Kahlo, with a palette inspired by her Caza Azul. The images are inspired by el día de los muertos and Frida’s brave and enthusiastic anticipation of her own death as a source of liberation. Also the leaves/ roots are inspired by doodles in her journal and similar references in her body of work.
