My heart belongs to Frida

Heart 2006, tapestry weaving, stuffed with wadding and backed with fabric.
I studied tapestry weaving at Morley College last year with William Jefferies. The weaving was inspired by this Frida Kahlo painting. It took almost 6 months to complete.

i don't know what it is exactly but i was drawn to this heart the moment i saw it...something really raw and tender about it and it just gets more so the more i look at it...

maybe it is also in the way it hangs so out in the open to be seen...
