I'm taking a few days in Philadelphia visiting my family before the New York Gift Show and came upon the work of M F Cardamone while visiting the Barnes Foundation Museum. (The Barnes merits a whole blog post of it's own, but suffice it to say, if you ever find yourself near Philadelphia and if you are a lover of art, particularly Cezanne, Matisse, Van Gogh, or Renoir, you definitely must go - seriously it's the largest Renoir collection in the world and the Matisse holdings are pretty extensive too)....but back to the reason for this post. Ms Cardamone has been an artist most of her adult life and lately she's been collaging these modern day herbariums - that double as infographics too, teaching you about the relationship between man and the plant. (And other things too)
This one is called Tree of Life. I am in total awe.
