Repurposed Mixed Media on Display at John Wayne Airport

Published on : Saturday, December 23, 2017

indexFrom December 19, 2017 – January 18, 2018, sustainable mixed media by Andrea Moni will be on display at John Wayne Airport (JWA) as part of JWA’s Community Focus Space Program. These works can be viewed on the Departure (upper) Level near security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

“Ms. Moni’s transformation of materials from a variety of sustainable sources, breathes new life into what already exists,” said Board Chairwoman Michelle Steel. “JWA guests will enjoy the whimsy, heroic value, and sense of rescue her work illustrates.”

Moni studied black and white photography in San Diego and started working with paint and color in 1995 after moving to Argentina. She was inspired by the local color and culture and discovered that painting was her personal language.

‘Recycle, recreate and respect’ is the essence of the JWA exhibit. Moni utilizes existing items and creates art that is fresh and unexpected. She searches for sustainable materials that once had another purposeful function and makes meaningful art from each green piece.

Ms. Moni spent her formative years in Southern California and met her husband, Fabian, while she was exploring South America. After moving between California and Argentina, they permanently settled in Irvine, California, in 2000. Moni’s current body of work, titled “and” represents an exploration and search for inner peace and healing. She approached her work with a new appreciation for life after being seriously burned in an accident in 2015, inspiring her to develop a technique that combines ocean currents and natural non-toxic materials.
Today, Moni invites individuals who have experienced their own form of pain and trauma to participate in the creative process. The love of nature and the environment are always an intrinsic component in that mission. This new work touches on the ups and downs of the human journey towards healing and consciousness.
