Yakima Maker Space Gallery is elated to present Monika Lemmon. Monika is an artist from Selah, WA. She received her BFA in Metalsmithing from Central Washington University and her MFA in Studio Art from the University of Idaho. Currently she resides in Denver, CO and instructs Drawing at Metropolitan State University. Her creative background consists of a wide variety of media and she is currently exploring the human anatomy and landscape in both two and three-dimensional disciplines. Most of her work alludes to her interest in causality, perception of lived experience, and fascination with the natural world.
Artist Statement: The physical body is our vehicle for lived experience. This vessel materially binds us to the natural world and the causal chain that determines our virtue and depravity. I emphasize the complex nature of our connected existence through intricate deconstruction of the human form. By dissolving the figure into visceral remnants and merging these with matrixes of natural and artificial constructions, I suggest the vulnerable and subjugated reality of life as a material being.
Please Join Us: Opening Reception August 4th with artist talk at 7 pm doors at 6 pm shut by 9 pm.
