MF Cardamone: Flora Fantastica 2018 Wall Calendar
“The whole idea is to talk about the ecology of the plant and comment on its medicinal, spiritual, and regional qualities. It’s whimsical and surreal, a combo of fine art and science.”
Artist MF Cardamone approaches her work with the eye of a nineteenth-century botanical illustrator and the soul of a contemporary artist. She treats each piece like a puzzle, juxtaposing the manmade with the natural. You might find a shoe, a letter to Santa, 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 calendar reproduces twelve of her mixed-media artworks, with insights and observations by the artist. Pomegranate also publishes Botanical Visions: The Art of MF Cardamone
