DESCRIPTION
Nancy Monk’s fourth solo exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery will be an installation of paintings, photographs, prints and sculpture entitled, “Made in Pasadena.” Monk is a playfully obsessive artist, whose prodigious and highly inventive production flows through a concept, subject matter or even a color palette like a visual stream of consciousness, working out seemingly every possible theme and variation with the curiosity and wonder of a child. The current exhibition explores the subject of trees, and Monk equates her passion with William Blake’s observation that, “the tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.” Nancy Monk’s trees grow and evolve from image to image, and from photo to painting to sculpture and back again. One can literally witness her process of visual exploration as the results of one artwork split and divide like cells, leading to the creation of dozens of related branches.
