"Stories Untold: Finding Artistic Inspiration Through Historical Research"
Presented by Monica Lundy
Guided by an interest in deepening one's understanding of place, Monica Lundy incorporates historical research into her studio practice. Her curiosity about lesser-known histories is paired with her curiosity about unconventional painting practices. Lundy's mixed-media paintings traverse painting and installation, abstraction and figuration. The work ruminates on the dispossessed, collective memory, and the corrosive nature of time.
