Flora sculpture series on display at Michigan Medicine
Anne Mondro is an artist and a professor in the U-M Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design. In a body of work now on display at Michigan Medicine, she reflects on how time spent in nature has inspired new personal discoveries and intellectual curiosity, while serving as a positive distraction from recent experiences with grief and sadness.
Drawing from these insights, Mondro crocheted and stitched fine wire to create intricate woven sculptures reminiscent of seeds, pods and other organic forms. Focusing on the wonderfully complex construction of these forms, Mondro mimics nature’s ability to be structurally strong while delicate in appearance to invite deeper exploration.
