In her new work Cryptofloriography, Monica Furmanski creates a dynamic environment that alters the viewer¹s perception and expectations. Experimenting with the removal of information in photographs and working intuitively, the artist has abstracted and reduced photographic images that give the viewer minimal information. Viewers must recreate the whole, filling in the ³missing² parts. Through this distillation of information the imagery becomes detached from its original source and takes on a new form, seemingly organic and cryptic. Unlike a collage, in which separate images are pieced together, her work takes two slices of time and overlaps them thus complicating time¹s passage or one-directional moment from the past to the future. The viewer interacts with the images and activates the standard viewer/image relationship, extending the possibilities of photography beyond its traditional application by turning it into an immersive experience that viewers must actively participate in.

Monica Furmanski received her Masters of Fine Art from Claremont Graduate University. Her work has been exhibited at the McNish Gallery at Oxnard College, The Peggy Phelps Gallery at Claremont Graduate University and at the Huntington Beach Art Center. She has upcoming shows this year at the Williamson Gallery at Scripps College and Upfront Gallery, Ventura.
