Jake Dew Scribe Comp. I Upon Deeper Inspection Many painters use contrast to express their views on subjects that they feel strongly about. Frida Kahlo uses this element to display her feelings on humanity itself. Many different faces are shown in the painting possibly representing the complexity or variety in life. The theme of embrace is also used throughout the painting. Kahlo also splits the picture down the middle to show the balance in life between good and evil or light and dark. Through these details, Kahlo creates a masterpiece that has as much symbolism and meaning as detail. Frida Kahlo paints many faces, all of different color, in one picture to show a general view on life itself. The faces shown are layered one behind the other possibly displaying the order of power in the universe. The forward most face is that of a baby; though the baby does have an extra eye, possible revealing the insight of the innocent.
