Weeds by Mona Caron, a Swiss-born, San Francisco-based full time artist, is a fantastic project.
They may be tiny yet they push through concrete. They are everywhere and yet unseen. But the more they get stepped on, the stronger they grow back.
This is a series of hidden mural paintings of weeds, created as a tribute to the resilience of all those beings who, like weeds, no one made room for, were not part of the plan, and yet keep coming back, pushing through and rising up.
I paint each weed gradually from bottom up in tiny increments, photographing each stage. With the resulting photos, I’m creating a series of short animated movies of giant weeds asserting their presence in a precarious environment.
