Los Angeles based artist, Monique van Genderen is now taking residence at the Happy Lion Gallery in LA. Showing off her painting discipline, she works within the boundaries of a six by four foot panel format for the current exhibition.
Monique received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and has exhibited internationally in museums and galleries. She has had solo exhibitions at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Wexner Center for the Arts in Ohio and Le Consortium in Dijon, France.
Reflecting particularly to this show, here are some words from the artist:
"These paintings which read light to dark, left to right or right to left seem to be in various states of completion. Paint hangs on the surface, exposing the structure of the panel, not unlike the various states of dress a model for couture might display, showing contour and line through bone beneath the fabric. They are written on the body."
Monique van Genderen's Personal Exhibition will be on display at the Happy Lion through July 11th. Above, Untitled 2009
