Mónika Üveges searches for the new sensuality staying inside the boundaries of easel or panel pictures, extending the classical material use of painting. In this objectified relief-like works she engages with the idea of ​​the human body's metamorphosis, the liminality in which 'in' and 'out' are present at the same time by 'the open body'.
 
Additionally in her paintings different organic and inorganic materials show great importance: silicone, synthetic resin, straw, crops, parched plants, tar, ash, debris, fur, pig bladder, and intestines.
 
 

 

These materials become symbols when abstracted, at the same time they carry circulating energy through the dichotomy of decomposition and fermentation. We associate it with perpetual fluctuation, hence we can talk about a sort of lyrical imaging.

 

The use of caducous materials appears in her art referring to human life. It's been a while that I'm interested in Anthropocene as a geological borderline, disappearance, and series of catastrophes, powers that are liberated by destructive human activity and that are placing everyone and everything on a crossroad.

 

In fact, this is not an interest, it is our present. Nature and the human body are present in my work metaphorically, as a shard of a feeling. I think my work can be characterized as a mixture of an equal amount of melancholy and playfulness.

 

I'm exploring the borderline between the natural and artificial in my works that imitate nature, which can be described as objectified images. I combine painting, sculpting, and the medium of photography.
