This set of four aquatints by Monique Prieto exemplifies her characteristic approach to abstraction, capturing a sense of dynamic energy and playfulness through a colorful arrangement of organic forms.

Known for her abstract paintings and drawings of animated amorphous blobs of color and forms, Monique Prieto (B. 1962) infuses a sense of the narrative in each of her works, with each shape becoming a character, an object, or a feeling which is being expressed and translated onto the surface. Though abstract, she creates work under the influence of allegories, current events, and personal experiences, with every piece becoming an embodiment of issues relating to her artistic process. The artist received her MFA and BFA from the California Institute of the Arts (Los Angeles, CA) and was the recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant in 1998. The artist has exhibited at numerous venues including Cheim & Read (New York, NY), Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (Wolfsburg, Germany), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles, CA), among others.
