An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Monica Lacey.
Monica Lacey is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work focuses on the beauty
of the broken, overlooked, or discarded. Monica spent many years traveling,
working in the film industry, and developing her skills as a writer, dancer,
and yoga teacher before returning to interdisciplinary studies in Textiles
and Photography at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. She has
received several awards and grants for excellence in her work and service to
her community and her art can be found in private collections across North America.
She lives and works in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
“I enjoy examining & considering the world visually; I can understand and
articulate things via my art that I couldn’t grasp any other way.
My work focuses mainly on drawing out the beauty of that which is broken,
overlooked, or discarded – it is important to me to look closely at life, to notice
the tiny details. I believe that things and places have their own lives and intimate
feelings and I want to tell those stories, to give voice to moments
otherwise forgotten. My studio practice encompasses a variety of
media and usually always involves layers and depth, as those elements
directly reflect my process.” ML
