Follow the Feelings Monica Andres Alvarez in Antwerp In the heart of Europe - alongside museums, historical buildings, art galleries, antiquity and jewellery craftsmen event “Diamonds for Life” will showcase innovative art in an elegant exhibition space at Palace on the Meir from the 8th to 13th February, 2014. The Palace on the Meir is an original 18th century building in the historical center of Antwerp. Never before has an art event celebrated Antwerp jewellery design in elegant fusion with contemporary fine art. Some of this event highlights include the artworks by the conceptual artist Monica Andres Alvarez. On focus are her new works “Blue as Peace” and “Red as Passion” which invites art lovers to discuss about it. In reviewing her artistic concept, the London based artist explains the meaning behind her new series: "My process begins with the imagination yet strives to express universal truths inherent in personal subjective experience. My work is in free hand; utilize organic materials, and focuses on what can be realized through focusing on the details. I redefine objects and embody a raw sensitivity exposed through the process of deconstruction and reconstruction. While my oeuvre clearly hints at unconscious truths I rejects the idea of “perfection” and embraces the beauty and truth stemming from the “mistake”. My influences are meditation, pop art, and expertise and study of publicity, fashion, architecture and graphic design.” Monica Andres Alvarez was born in Spain and studied Graphic Design in Madrid and Event Management for Art Industries at St. Martin’s College London. The London based artist, who actually has a show at British Council, is creating abstractions, which are clearly structured and yet fluent. Nevertheless her artworks are not abstract landscapes in the classical sense with a horizon or perspective lines. They can be read as micro-or macroscopic sections. Expressing the changing lights and vanity of beauty, the motifs are combining dark and bright colors to achieve a strong two-dimensional color composition. Shapes and colors play a game of interaction between background and foreground, space and ornament. Her paintings “Red as a Passion” and “Blue as Peace” are symbolizing love of life as well as tranquility, freedom and peace. If Madrid, London or Antwerp - no doubt, Monica Andres Alvarez can open minds and hearts all over the world.
