Edward Weston - Bathers - Les baigneurs 1919
Alyssa Monks’ paintings explore the tension between abstraction and realism, using different filters to visually distort and disintegrate the body. In this shallow painted space, the subject is pushing against our real space. Strokes of thick paint in delicate color relationships are pushed and pulled to imitate glass, steam, water and flesh.
Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not.
