As we explore these paintings, we experience one of the means through which Monique Germaine investigates her world.
Sometimes studies from life, at other times aesthetic and cerebral exercises aimed at uncovering deeper meaning.
The Musicians painting is 108 x 48 inches – 3 pieces – oil on canvas. Monique met these musicians at Galita’s, restaurant and concert hall, in Prince George British Columbia. Her paintings were a permanent collection at that time.
The Battle is 80 x 48 inches – 2 pieces – oil on canvas. She had a young neighbor in Prince George who had a pet iguana so she took photos and months later, this painting came out looking like this.
