Mona Brody
Where do the boundaries of jewelry, painting and sculpture lie and is it possible to cross them ?

That was the challenge Gallery Loupe presented to Artist Mona Brody one year ago, after visiting her Franklin Street Studio to view her paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture.

The artist explains: “My artistic practice has always been one of collecting objects, making sculpture from those objects and then transforming that imagery into my drawings, paintings and prints. If I could alter my understanding of jewelry as a body of objects…perhaps experimenting in this expressive discipline would be possible.”

The result of this challenge is seen in Mona Brody’s new exhibition “Found Walking.” In this series, Brody channels her process of unearthing, selecting and collecting remains from decayed plants and trees to generate imagery that extends beyond the woods and becomes “wearable objects.”
“Walking is an art of discovery and passion for me”, says Brody. “The hidden voices of the evocative objects suggest nature’s past beauty and time.”
