THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
These Mixed Media works are inspired by the spiritual practice in Don Miguel Ruiz‘s book, The Four Agreements and visually express his principles to achieve love and happiness. Monica combines traditional painting and drawing mediums with digital tools and printmaking, all with the focus of creating a modern manifestation with text as its basis. She transfers her digital drawings on to painted wood panels utilizing a chemical process that lifts the pigment from an inkjet print and creates a one-of-a-kind modern day print; imperfect and altered from the original. The repetition of the mantras transforms the text into a visual form that can be coherent and easy to read or obliterated into abstraction.
