As an artist and amateur historian, I've been enamored by the Adelita Soldiers of the Mexican Revolution. Adelita was the name given to the women who followed husbands and lovers to war during the uprising between 1910-1920.  These camp followers cooked, cleaned and nursed wounds. When it came time for military combat, the Adelita women soldiers bravely picked up guns and fought. With this exhibit I hope to generate awareness about these remarkable women.


Riding the recent wave of fascination with Frida Kahlo, Angel Wynn has created a body of work that features this famous uni-brow woman. The series includes images of Kahlo along with her collection of unusual pets, birds and her love of flowers. I use mixed media of photography, textiles, vintage papers and even cocktail napkins to create smaller works of collage. Frida Kahlo was her own muse, as portrayed in most of her paintings -- she may have been one of the first big time selfie users! I want to portray the intensity, femininity and all things that brought great joy to Frida throughout her painful adult life.
