Monica Kim Garza

MONICA KIM GARZA - ATLANTA, GEORGIA


 
 

 

Originating from her own image and multi-cultural background, Monica Kim Garza is intrinsically drawn to creating artwork using the female figure and the experiences of those characters. This image has evolved over the years and has come to be it's own motif. A sense of nostalgia and playful longing is often felt within the work, using memories from her personal life and travels as inspiration for narrative. Monica’s recent visit to Morocco informs her current body of work in the tradition of Matisse in Morocco or Gauguin in Tahiti, depicting local women engaging in everyday activities via the female gaze. Monica’s women have a hunger for life and unabashedly take up space; as in her previous work, the artist is not afraid to dive into the pleasures of a full figure, while she simultaneously continues to experiment within the formal practice of figurative painting. Apart from the figure, Monica’s expressive approach to color, shape and texture all play a larger role in the work demonstrating an affinity for experimentation and desire to portray women from an empowered point of view.
