INFORMATION

Monica Renaud’s works on paper* and fabric originate as a single iPhone image taken during everyday domestic ritual.  She transfers these palm sized pictures into distorted large-scale realms before gently hand manipulating the photographic data.  

Colour, line, composition and space inform these painterly abstractions from the artist, who says she “finds solace amongst the valleys and folds” of the digitally generated landscapes.

The meditative process of transforming something presumed artless or banal into a complex, multilayered, parallel Universe, Renaud says, “acts as metaphor for her experience of being born into Motherhood.”
