Working within a process reflective of life experiences, Monica embraces accidental and incidental moments; allowing herself to be guided by material. In doing so, she has come to realise that she is always seeking the catalyst or disruption. Her decisions are therefore an adaptation or acquiescence to circumstance as she navigates between anxiety and optimism; chaos and control. In nature, all things must adapt to the uncontrollable elements forced upon them, and she’s embraced the transformative nature of the elements as potential collaborators in her practice.
