Monique Ford is currently exhibiting her work titled “Botanical Anatomy” at the Harrison Public Library. The show includes 12 watercolor paintings on canvas from her recent series.
The show is accessible Monday and Wednesdays 9:30-9pm, Tuesday, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9;30-5:30pm, and Sunday from 1-5pm.
My Botanical Anatomy series began after a major personal transition which created tremendous growth and change. My artistic process became a new experience. I started to envision new forms. It was liberating and natural as the imagery came pouring out of me. In the beginning of this series my sketches and works on paper had many anatomical forms that played a key role in representing the human presence and slowly the botanical forms became the human experience. The paintings are about relationships, the tension between them, the power, pain, joy and impermanence of how we connect and move through one another. Color, line, form and composition are all devices that enrich and build on the narrative within the floral imagery. The most recent works are direct reflections of the time we are living in. As the pandemic hit record highs over the last eighteen months the dialogue of the work became more about isolation and how our relationships have impacted our daily lives. I seek to create beauty within time and experience.
