Irana Douer: Futuristic Frida

I ran into Irana’s work about a year ago on some art blog and to my surprise, ended up meticulously analyzing every image.  Focusing on womanhood, Irana takes a central character and puts her through various situations of love, brutality, and harmony.  She channels Frida Kahlo’s work very closely but in a more playful sense allowing the viewer to participate more with the piece.  She truly understands the many ways, layers, and moods of a woman and uses strong historical symbology.  She currently lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina and has some great pieces for purchase at her Etsy store.
