Monci’s current body of work explores the most fundamental elements of art and design, in color and form, and how these elements relate to each other and the viewers.
His compositions are of subjects such as perception and matter, creating autonomous structures born of color and form that are constructed into dynamic and sometimes explosive matrices of architectural and graphic elements. These structures are uncanny and meant to inform the language and nuance of color, whose purpose is to create a visceral reaction to the otherwise static elements of flat shapes. Alluding to principles of perspective is key, giving stoic forms of rectangles and lines filled with opaque washes of color and graphic pattern, a feeling of objectivity and motion through space and time. These futuristic constructions hinge on their own gravitational pull with a nexus of motion while hovering in solidarity.
