Artist's description:

Strongly influenced by the life story of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, who suffered terrible injuries in a tram accident that left her in permanent pain from the age of 18, Ruggiero’s work explores the inexplicable ability of humanity to deal with suffering through the beauty of the paint brush which inspires colour, hope and imagination

Many of her works render the female face, which is obviously based on Kahlo’s, with clown-like eyes and pink cheeks which, Ruggiero explains, represent “the mask that I put up, though less and less so, in order to make my husband, family and friends happy
