Works by Monique Becker

Monique’s works present an ongoing exploration of the colour black in contrast to white and grey shades, as well as earth tones. The artist creates poetic large formats in which utter physical commitment and a close engagement with the canvas are required. Inherent in the artist's paintings are a high degree of spontaneity as well as a dynamic use of brushes, body parts and colours. It is not uncommon to see relief-like elements in the artist's paintings, highlighted by the full use of her body, but mostly her hands, revealing claws and scratches. The artist brings forth a vibrant festival of colors - black, white, grey, ocher, brown, pale pink, olive green - and inflamed movements that captivate the viewer. The artist is expressing freedom and a joie de vivre by superimposing and the coexistence of paint layers and materials. Monique’s paintings evoke a sensual intensity and are charged with emotions. The artist focuses on herself and her sensations, which are often shaped by her engagement with nature.
