Los Angeles artist Monica Wyatt opens her solo show, Continuum, at The Museum of Art and History in Lancaster on January 20th with a reception at 6-8pm. The show runs to March 3rd.
Monica collects cultural artefacts from previous eras and, in deconstructing them, she resurrects new objects that honor that past and create a new language on an aesthetic continuum that conveys the resonance of an alchemy that we all possess, and reminds the viewer that identity and community are made from diverse elements brought together in harmony.
MOAH Cedar presents Continuum, Wyatt’s first installation at the museum and the ongoing collaboration with curator jill moniz. Wyatt’s assemblage has evolved from the early influence of Joseph Cornell to a more outside of the box approach. She credits Betye Saar, Claire Falkenstein, Ruth Asawa, Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse and Lee Bontecou with giving her the courage and impetus to pursue engaging themes and compositions that reflect her love for materials, and the new life and meaning she gives them.
