|But Frida's outlook was vastly different from that of the Surrealists.
Her art was not the product of a disillusioned European culture
searching for an escape from the limits of logic by plumbing
the subconscious. Instead, her fantasy was a product of her temperament,
life, and place; it was a way of coming to terms with reality,
not of passing beyond reality into another realm.
||As Herrara explains, Frida's surrealistic vision was unlike
that of the European Surrealists. While their art grew out of their
disenchantment with society and their desire to explore the subconscious
mind as a refuge from rational thinking, Frida's vision was an outgrowth
of her own personality and life experiences in Mexico. She used her
surrealistic images to understand better her actual life, not to
a dreamworld (258).
