artist's statement

Objects, those that are found, made, or gifted to me, influence my work. Evocative objects act as emotional and intellectual companions that anchor memory and sustain new ideas.

Joined with the expressive and physical nature of the materials and the suggested autobiographical content, the passage of the personal transmutes into the ambiguous.

Cradled panels and paper support charcoal, pencil, paint, transferred charcoal drawings, and wax. The layered surfaces veil, obscure, and suggest what is not present.

-- Mona Brody, 2012
