MF Cardamone: Flora Fantastica 2020 Wall Calendar
“I’m always thinking about ways to illustrate the idea that we are uniquely connected to the natural world.”
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 train engine, a teapot, a key, or a clock 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 the book Botanical Visions: The Art of MF Cardamone.
