MY ART STARTS IN THE GARDEN
"As a passionate gardener, my art is as intricately entwined as the gardens surrounding my studio. Cultivating and tending these gardens is the first stage of creating the art that grows in my studio.
The lessons learned from the garden permeate my work. With boldness in color & scale, my art summons with seeming simplicity the complex questions of existence and purpose. These flowers represent a microcosm of the universe in their families and community as well as their quest for survival, eventual senescence and rebirth. With a duality of external and internal vision, my flowers invite the viewer to see, larger than life, the beauty and intricacy of flowers. In their boldness, I suggest a contemplation of their relevance and ours in the social order of our universe." ~ Mary Ahern (NY)
