Portraits of an Inner Dialogue
In “Portraits of an Inner Dialogue”, Monica expresses her internal voice in an abstract, yet constrained environment driven by shape, color, texture, and text. These mixed media artworks represent struggles and conflicts with identities of being a mother, a wife, a daughter, a New Yorker, a woman, a person. Monica uses the circle to convey various notions of being “OK" and it comes down to a three-word question and a three-word answer: Am I OK? I am OK. Monica uses text as the foundation and materializes the digital with pigment transfers, oils and acrylics.
