The Lifeboats series speaks to a current and pervasive sense of dislocation. Stripped of values that give our lives a center of rationality and equilibrium, we are weightless, with the weight of the world. I have stripped away all but what is essential in an intimate exploration not in things that are extraordinary, but from things that make up the substance of our everyday lives.
I have a BFA from Pratt Institute with further studies at PAFA and U of Arts. Exhibitions have been In the United States and Europe. My work is in the collections of the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Newark Public Library and the Oberlin College Clarence Ward Art Library. http://monicakaneart.com
