Monica Tap: Pictorial Intelligence

Image coming soon.

Sally McKay writes about the work of painter Monica Tap.

McKay notes: "Tap collects source material for her large, lush paintings by shooting highly compressed digital video through the side window of a fast-moving car… All the depth and luminance is carefully rendered in thick paint. The paintings seem to emit light, like a screen, not because lighter areas are shining through from behind, but because Tap has paid close attention to the kinds of colours captured by the camera. Likewise, the digital-look and feel emerges through Tap’s precise, measured manipulation of the visual language of paint… indeed, all the blurriness is painstakingly constructed with discrete, detailed brushstrokes and nuanced colour combinations."
