Jeff sits down with artist Frida Cornelio to hear about hear artistic perspective and about how she creates art that confronts the public on social issues while promoting awareness and change.
She is a Mexican figurative painter whose interest in the human figure is in what composes it aesthetically and psychologically.
Frida also speaks about "Dalia," her exhibit at Liggett Studio that closed recently. Her work for this show deals with the femicide that is plaguing Northern Mexico right now due to the culture of machismo.
Latin America has one of the highest rates of femicides around the world, and the cultural acceptance of this violence is linked to the culture of machismo that exists within Latin America.
Through the depiction of the female portrait, Frida has brought light into this issue and empower women who have been victims of gender inequality and abuse to find their own self-worth.
