Obscured Portraiture, Monica Rohan

Using space as a striking pictorial device, 25-year-old Australian artist Monica Rohan positions her female subjects in adventurous settings, endlessly floating or falling, climbing or reclining, hunting or hiding. 

She describes the way she works as “a completely selfish absorption into the painting itself – meditative but also infuriating. It’s about feeling too much, or feeling like I feel too much, when even the most insignificant and ordinary moments flourish into an external struggle.
