Woospace Artist: Monique Prieto
Monique is an artist who I always found interesting, but odd. Her work came to be recoginzable for her abstract blobs. The first time I saw them, I hated them. But they grow on you. It seems her work is shifting and I thought this would be a great time to show you a painter in transition. I like her new direction (the text pieces). Here is a little about the way she use to work:
"With her funky biomorphic forms, Prieto reinvents the process of painting and overthrows romantic myths of self-expression. Using Painter 3 Mac software she draws in color with her fingers on the tiny touchpad of her laptop. She paints from the small images she prints out when they seem right. Each shape represents a character."
