Frida's Heart - photograph by Gail Russell

Frida’s Heart

Frida Kahlo has been an artistic hero of mine since I was very young.

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a self taught artist, her surreal images of interior experiences joined with the color and strength of her Mexican and Indian heritage. Married to the famous Mexican muralist Diego Rivera she made waves and art her whole life. Wearing long embroidered skirts and elaborate head decorations she might have looked like an Aztec goddess to the matrons of San Francisco, New York and Paris.
She became only famous to the world decades after her death.

In 2002 Salma Hayek made the film “Frida” a stunning visual statement of her life and times.

Gail Russell’s Greeting Card Shop

Gail Russell is a photographic artist and designer living in Taos, New Mexico. She has a studio gallery where she exhibits and sells her photographic work along with her popular line of shawls, scarves and leg warmers. In 2008, she was named a Taos Living Master for her photography; in 2013 she was honored as one of the Remarkable Women of Taos.

Gail studied at Albright Knox School of Fine Art, Pratt Institute, and The School of Visual Arts. In 1968, she received her first camera and has never put it down.

In 1978 Gail moved to the Taos area and has exhibited her work widely and continuously since then. Her artistic foundation was informed, deepened, and sustained over decades by the relationships that she has maintained with Native elders and their extended families. In 1987, with Lakota Grandmother Nellie Red Owl, Gail founded the Adopt-a-Grandparent Program which for fifteen years brought support to elders and their families on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

Gail Russell's art embodies a positive, uplifting spirit. The photographs reflect the beauty of nature, spiritual awareness, Native American life and culture, holy shrines and spiritual architecture, botanicals, the human form, landscapes and cloudscapes, love, and sometimes Maya, her macaw.
