Artists » Monica Majoli

2002 Fellow

Monica Majoli examines the relationship between sexuality and identity, more broadly dealing with the psychological aspects of physical experience. In the works shown in this exhibition, Majoli depicts figures encased in rubber, a seemingly rough and sadomasochistic restriction rendered in delicate washes of watercolor. The artist speaks of the isolation of the subjects and the self-reflection engendered in viewers, stating that “landscape in these works is internalized, echoing or superimposing the landscape within the boundaries of the body and the mind.”

Majoli has shown internationally, with solo shows at Gagosian Gallery and Air de Paris, as well as group shows such as the Whitney Biennial, the Berlin Biennial and the Hammer Museum, among others. She is an assistant professor in Studio Art at UC Irvine.
