A narrative conceptual artist, Monica Andres Alvarez explores the meaning of objects and offers a story through the canvas. Her process begins with thoughtful and meditated imagination that explores the meaning of universal truth through its subjective experience.
Monica Andres Alvarez was born in Spain and studied Fine art and Graphic Design in Madrid and Event Management for Art Industries at St. Martin’s College London.
The Madrid-based artist, who actually had a show at British Council, is creating abstractions, which are clearly structured and yet fluent. Nevertheless, her artworks are not abstract landscapes, in the classical sense, with a horizon or perspective lines. They can be read as micro or macroscopic sections.
Expressing the changing lights and vanity of beauty, the motifs are combining dark and bright colors to achieve a strong color composition.
Shapes and bright colors play a game of interaction between background and foreground, space and ornament. Her paintings are symbolizing the love of life, dreams, feeling as well as tranquility, freedom, and peace.
