2018 Wall Calendar: "Flora Fantistica", by MF Cardamone
$7.49 Regular price
Botanical artist MF Cardamone (American, born 1958) studied horticulture at the Barnes Foundation, where she immersed herself in history, plants, scientific documentation, and Chinese medicine. Using contemporary techniques and imagery, she creates botanical illustrations that explore the relationships between people and plants. She treats each piece like a puzzle, juxtaposing the manmade and the natural. You might find a shoe, a toy boat, or a cityscape in one of her creations, but their inclusion isn't random. Cardamone links regional icons and social commentary with scientific information about specific plants, then embellishes the whole with elegant calligraphy.
This 2018 wall calendar reproduces a dozen of Cardamone's mixed-media artworks, with insights and observations by the artist. Includes an insert listing major International holidays.
The Barnes Shop also carries original mixed-media artwork by MF Cardamone; contact us for details.
