This Month’s ArtWalk:
Friday, January 9th, 2014
Join us for a dainty display of floral collages by local teacher and artist Monica Beasley. These creative and playful pieces of art will have you wishing it was spring!
Monica J. Beasley received her M.FA. in painting from Northwestern University in 2002. Since the early 2000’s she has created a broad range of work exploring themes of femininity, love and daintiness. Her work has reflected on her southern roots, collected memory and remnants of the past. Her works deploy different materials and techniques from ready-made objects such as sewing patterns, spoons, aprons to traditional media: paint and paper.
Over the past ten years Monica has charted her childhood, by creating videos of her father, and interviewing her 98 year old grandmother about our first African American president. She has honored has great aunts by developing a series called the Toile Series.
Presently, Monica is working on a series of floral collages. The floral patterning was first just studies and “play” but later the arrangements began to grow into finished works. Gracefulness, delicacy, randomness,colorful playful, and precious are words that describe Monica’s work.
Take a sneak peek at some of the featured art below.
