Ellen Heck I

Ellen Heck is a young printmaker from California. These are a selection from Ellen's series 'Forty Frida's'. 
"Forty Fridas is a portfolio of woodcut and drypoint prints depicting forty different women and girls dressed up as Frida Kahlo. Individually, each portrait focuses intimately on the task of pretending to be someone one isn’t – and in so doing, revealing oneself all the more. When viewed together, themes of identity and variation rise to the foreground." Ellen Heck
