Throughout her career as an artist, Alabama native, Monica Beasley, has explored concepts of feminism, femininity, home, marriage, family, race and Southern culture. Monica attributes much of her influence to her strong and loving mother and her cherished aunts—three of the works in this exhibition are titled and dedicated to three of these aunts. She is also influenced by the nkisi of Central Africa, the Hopi Native American tribe and Haitian spiritual art. Teacher, friend, and painter Ed Paschke, as well as artists Ellen Gallagher and Kerry James Marshall have also had tremendous influence on her life and work.
