D4L Exhibitor: Monica Andres Alvarez
Meet this weeks featured exhibitor for Diamonds for Life, conceptual artist Monica Andres Alvarez!
She will be displaying her new works “Blue as Peace” and “Red as Passion” from February 10th to 13th at the royal Paleis op de Meir in Antwerp, invoking much discussion among art lovers.
In reviewing her artistic concept, the London based artist explains the meaning behind her new series: “My process begins with the imagination yet strives to express universal truths inherent in personal subjective experience”. Monica works freehand utilizing organic materials and putting emphasis on what can be realized through focusing on fine details. Monica redefines objects and embodies a raw sensitivity which is exposed through the process of deconstruction and reconstruction. While her oeuvre clearly touches on unconscious truths she rejects the idea of “perfection” and embraces the beauty and truth stemming from “mistake”.
Monica’s influences are meditation, pop art, fashion, architecture and graphic design as well as her studies and expertise in publicity.
Monica Andres Alvarez was born in Spain and studied Graphic Design in Madrid and Event Management for Art Industries at St. Martin’s College, London. Monica has exhibited her works at the British Council. Monica often creates abstract art, which is clearly structured, yet fluid. Neher artworks are not abstract landscapes in the classical sense with a horizon or perspective lines. They can be read as micro-or macroscopic sections.
Expressing the changing lights and vanity of beauty, the motifs are combining dark and bright colors to achieve a strong two-dimensional colour composition. Shapes and colors play a game of interaction between background and foreground, space and ornament. Her paintings “Red as a Passion” and “Blue as Peace” are symbolizing love of life as well as tranquility, freedom and peace.
Whether in Madrid, London or Antwerp – no doubt, Monica Andres Alvarez can open minds and hearts all over the world!
