ABOUT THE WORK
You're not looking at us, we're looking at you is the first unspoken utterance offered by the women in Monica Kim Garza's painted universes. Favoring authentic vivacity over conceptual certainty, the wisdom offered by her matriarchy multiplies until it is replete within the frame. There is an unabashed celebration of life to be had and it includes moving bodies, eating tropical fruits and fresh fish, bountiful sunlight, and not apologizing for your existence. With each expressive stroke, Garza electrifies the athletic solidity of her figures. Mah Gah Ree Tah 01-15 is a series of silkscreen prints that have been hand-finished by the artist with glitter, collaged paper, and acrylic.
