Imaginary Cartography

Art by Marthe Aponte

On display Thursday, February 29 - Thursday March 28

Art Reception: Thursday, February 29, 6-8pm

I am a French American artist living in Lancaster at the edge of the Mojave Desert. I draw my inspiration from my life in France, Venezuela, and California, influenced by African and Australian aboriginal people’s artistic traditions as well as the flora and fauna.

I am interested in creating images that reflect my interest in poetry, myths, rituals, and a sense of the sacred to produce a spiritual atmosphere for meditation. My work represents an imaginary cartography that explores the interface between trees, nature, and women.

As I stroll through the forest, the beauty of each plant, trees and flowers become spiritual conduits to a very personal experience that transports me. I hope my artwork finds a way to call attention to the importance of our personal and physical interactions with nature.

I was awarded the Beryl Amspoker Memorial Award for Outstanding Female Artists during the Museum of Art and History’s Annual Juried Exhibition, Cedarfest.

My work is in public and private collection across the United Sates and in Asia.

I am a member of Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art and Kipaipai Alumni 2017
