ARTIST DƏ ˈZHO͝OR: Monique van Genderen

I was lucky enough to have Monique as a professor when I was at Art Center. What an amazing amazing person and absolutely rock solid painter. She's very subtle in person, but her work truly does bring me to my knees at moments. Needless to say. She rules. Monique...If you can feel my internet vibrations. Well. Okay. They are there. For you. Love Kinley.

Preoccupied with surface quality and color, creating varying levels of reflection and transparency in her work through the use of various types of paint.

Painting in Place collection ("…the love of gold”), 2013

Gold leaf on linen

4 × 11 × 1 3/4 in

10.2 × 27.9 × 4.4 cm

 

Her vibrant abstract paintings make me think about  Helen Frankenthaler’s  painting practice and Lorser Feitelson’s illusionistic designs.

 

MONEY in. The. Bank.
