Geoff Tuck reviews an exhibition of paintings by Monica Majoli at L & M Art, Los Angeles, CA, on view through January 5, 2013.

Tuck writes: "As the paintings in Monica Majoli’s exhibition at L & M Arts alternate materials, between oil on panel and lithographic ink with acrylic ink and gouache on paper, so do they alternate subjects, between intimate figure studies of past lovers and abstracted architectural spaces; additionally, sometimes the material also serves as the subject. And in any case the relationship between subjects – people and spaces – is so intimate and personal that they are nearly one thing... My experience of the exhibition on my second visit, as it was first, is an experience of looking into darkness, and finding in the darkness those things we do there: fantasize, remember, love and dream."
