Statement

Florence Moonan is a contemporary abstract painter working in acrylic and mixed media. She was raised in Lambertville, New Jersey, but Stockton has been her home for over 50 years now. Moonan received her Bachelor of Fine Arts summa cum laude from The College of New Jersey in 2002. She has had solo exhibitions at Abington Art Center, Trenton City Museum (2012 and 2001), The Gallery at Hillside Square in Montclair and other venues. Moonan’s artwork was selected for Philadelphia’s Art in City Hall 2013 exhibition: Library of Life, and Abstraction Revisited at New Hope Arts Center. She was invited to participate in a two-person show with renowned stone carver, Ayami Aoyama, at The Gallery at Mercer County Community College in 2012. She completed an intensive two-week encaustic workshop conducted by Professor Kristy Deez, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine. Her paintings have been selected for numerous juried shows, solo, invited, and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States. In 2015 she will be participating in Continuum: Exhibition of Master and Emerging Artists, at New Hope Arts Center.

Moonan’s inspirations for her paintings and drawings spring from bits and pieces from her memories--places, family mementos, travel, and above all, music. Painting provides her the freedom she needs to express her internal emotions through color and texture. Currently, she is exploring Venetian plaster; its unique qualities help her produce surfaces that are, to her, as immediately appealing and sensuous as a beautiful aria. Her latest series is not only inspired by music, it is on it. She has up-cycled her old LP records into works of art. Some of these works have the appearance of ancient artifacts and others suggest connections to the song tracks buried beneath the newly painted surface. She enjoys using relics from her past to connect with others in a new way.
