Between a goodbye and return
The red chair
In silence I lose
The great void
Woman of sad eyes
Born on May 22, 1978, in Torreon Coahuila, Mexico.
Harmoniously involved in art since childhood, she has been self-taught,most of her life.
With the hunger to express herself in better ways, she began her career in Lorenzo de ‘Medici Academy in Florence, Italy in 1999, studying techniques of oil painting, china ink, mixed media, nude, drawing, and watercolor.
Florence gave Monica the space and opportunity to explore her own feelings and enabled her to express the themes that intrigued and fascinated her. In this way, far from falling into complacency, the author invites us to carefully perceive the cries, breathes and voices of her characters that talk to us as finite, insecure, and self-centered beings, full of anxieties, fears and loneliness. The ease in which she is able to touch each emotion involves us in a complex and surreal world.
She continued her studies in 2002 and 2003 in San Miguel de Allende in the Bellas Artes academy and in the Allende Institute with courses in sculpture, etching, batik, oils, etc. She returned to Torreon for solo expositions. At the same time she has collaborated in several collective expositions in and around the region, including Saltillo, Monterrey, and Chihuahua.
