Creation is a sacred act where I roam hidden places of my being, both known and unknown. It's a search for the authentic forms that live inside me, without any mental or aesthetic judgment, with the greatest freedom I can seize in the moment. It is a struggle against my own limitations, preconceptions, beliefs, and judgments.
My creation is a dialogue between the canvas and myself, to translate with colors, and lines, the forms that already inhabit it. To watch the chaos within me take form, and connect to the infinite rhythm of the moment, the Silent Symphony.
Monica Armel, is a Colombian painter who currently lives and works in New York City. She grew up in Pereira, a city of eternal spring, in the coffee triangle. Her early works were inspired by the colors, light, nature, and varied forms from this vibrant land, a land where chaos and beauty dance in perfect harmony.
Since moving to New York City in 2017, her art has become focused on finding her unique voice, and to connect with her feminine force.
Today, Monica’s work incorporates the speed and chaos of the City, which she draws inside herself, and releases spontaneously to create great movement in color and rhythm.
