Monica Tap: Reprise
Monica Tap continued her painterly investigation into floral motifs, which began withi her reconstructive analysis of 17th century Dutch flower paintings. Tracing the use of stylized flowers and foliage from their historical origins to more recent wallpaper and fabric patterns, Tap created intriguingly layered works, in which contemporary distancing techniques in painting, such as appropriation, seriality and repetition, were combined with painterly brushwork and a sensuous palette, to reinvest the vegetal traces with meaning.
