hen Frida Kahlo‘s tragic bus accident left her bedridden and isolated from her teenage peers, she took to painting. There, in the isolation of her hospital room, she began an inward journey which would produce some of the most fantastical work the world has ever known.
So also when you step inside the world and works of the two contemporary painters introduced here, Steven Kenny and Pamela Dzaet, we sense a similar mix of aching brilliance. Stories told through beseeching eyes and beautiful bodies working to free themselves from physical and emotional strain and constraints. So powerfully told, these narratives, that their struggle becomes ours. And so also, our prayers for their liberation.
