Vibrant. Energetic. Ethereal. These are words that surface when viewing the art of Monica Loncola. Originally from Monmouth County, NJ, the artist summered on the beaches of the Atlantic where she continues to be inspired by the treasures she finds along tidelines of the ocean and rivers. Working predominantly in oil, watercolor, pencil and ink, the artist creates works that transcend the ordinary, giving rise to iconic forms uniquely her own yet familiar. Patterns, fractals, forms, and colors merge together creating evocative versions of objects that stop her in her tracks compelling her to create an image of what captures her attention. Her work has been published in the New York Times, Edible Long Island, Spotlight Magazine to name a few. She has exhibited internationally through the US State Department Art in-the-Embassies Program in The Gambia, West Africa, Japan, Puerto Rico, and in numerous cities in the USA. She holds a BFA from Rosemont College, PA and has studied at the Art Students League, NYC, Moore College of Art, PA. and Academy of Art University, San Francisco, CA. Ms. Loncola spends her time equally between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans where she maintains a studio in the SF Bay Area, and at Matawan, NJ.

Under endless onyx bridges


70 x 80 cm. Oil on canvas. 2019.

My last painting inspired by the passage from H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Rats in the Walls”.

“My searchlight expired, but still I ran. I heard voices, and yowls, and echoes, but above all there gently rose that impious, insidious scurrying; gently rising, rising, as a stiff bloated corpse gently rises above an oily river that flows under endless onyx bridges to a black, putrid sea.”
