Autoritrattio in Frammenti (Self-portait of Scraps)

2007 , Acrylic on Canvas
35.5 x 35.5 in (90 x 90 cm)

The faded woman hidden amongst the painted “scraps” is the late Spanish painter Frida Kahlo. A tribute of sorts by Lidia Bachis as well as a subtle statement towards empowered women (via the images of gun toting freedom fighters). There’s a minimal color palette that permeates every facet on the canvas.

Lidia Bachis ( 1969 - ).

Lidia Bachis was born in Rome in 1969 where she currently lives and works.
She attended the School of Art “Alessandro Caravillani” but the passion for arts in general was already present in her life so strongly that she decided to use it as her first way of expression.
She won the scholarship at the School of The Art of Medal- Istituto Poligrafico della Zecca di Stato.
In 2000 she started to exhibit her art both in Italy and abroad, showing her point of view to the public.
