The Bride Frightened At Seeing Life Opened


Frida Khalo.  1943.  Unibrow meet uniVISIONary.  

Could a dissOrientalized artist have chosen a title for her still life that might possibly betta portend Dominant Cult's 'fear to tread' near H2Omeloncholia and CONsequential ceremonious, absurdist, quantum leap down the aisle to POSTopia wherein abundant or fruitful Priv 'weds' subconscious hierarchical hysteria?  

Note the placement of plantains, i. e., 'done gone bananas' next to a cocoNUT.  O, the augury of it all!  'Grasshoppa'?  A futuristic as fictional martial art protégé lands upon the 'bruised' skin.  Ms. Kahlo's 'brush' charges the self-defendin', burgeoning sage insect to challenge the surrealist 'scene'.  This motif of lunacy in-conflict-with-itself is further juxtaposed next to a perched owl.  Wisdom..."come home to roost".  From left to right, peep thee - long - behind black-spotted plantains/ Kung Fu-Freudian 'Grasshoppa'/ the 'face' of whole, uncut cocoNUT/ Malcom X oratory chicken owl.  Shared background, my good peops, the singular commonality?  Jacked-up, jagged melon!  

C'mon, gentlesoulfolk.  Ain't just me.  Can't be.  

Now, the owl?  'Tis the only subject in the foreground to overlap anotha fruit: pineapple.  Pineapple happens to be universally acknowledged as symbolizing hospitality.  Doth not the Other-ed Ethnic of exiled citizenry hope to encounter a gracious host?  Here, depicted as growing wiser and positioned farthest from the scared bride, perchance, Extra Terrestrialized H2Omeloncholy"phones home".

a clever as compassionate critique
on the implausibility of
POSTness 

Til our next 'post', feast upon produce in season...
