Some parts of the anatomy, we can at times find amusing because they can be a little silly looking with their changing sizes, shapes, textures, and colors. Those same parts at times cause us to feel curious, aroused, and to act playfully. I like to think about them as innocent – sweet, shy, and naive. Or as parts of the body that connect, encourage excitement, and invite us to experience new sensations. Do you remember your first sweet kiss? The first times you felt a burning passion, love, or lust for another person? I bet you felt a little bashful too.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Having begun her art journey most notably as a dancer, Mónica Moreno performed and choreographed for colleges and small theatre companies in Los Angeles. While dancing she studied audio production, video production, and graphic design. Much later, Mónica discovered and fell in love with metalwork, and mixed-media sculpture.
She is presently focused on creating wearable artwork, although the digital skills that she has acquired also make it into much of her practice. She is a lifelong learner that is in awe of how many techniques there are to learn that can be incorporated into the pieces that she envisions – making her an interdisciplinary artist whose creativity is constantly shifting and growing.
Through her work Mónica explores the toughest of human emotions, searching for understanding and the beauty in them. She admires the lines and abstract shapes found in nature and in the human body, something you’ll clearly find in her sculptural work.
