Moo-na Lisa, mon amour

moo na lisa

From Austria with love comes this collage by Monika Mori (a.k.a. MOO). Here Ms. Mori reveals her lighter side in a Munch-like self-portrait. Everyone loves a good Ménage à trois, and we think this collaboration between three fine artists is particularly noteworthy.  (What do you say, Marcel?)

Sly smiles aside… consider Mori’s provocative abstracts in her collection Shattered Rainbow, published last year by Black Scat Books.

X-ray Visions

from Shattered Rainbow by Monika Moriacrylics on x-ray by Monika Mori

When we first discovered the paintings of Austrian artist Monika Mori (known internationally as “Moo”) we were mesmerized by her abstract forms and bold colors. Her powerful imagery on x-rays using a palette knife opened a door to a world of fresh visions.

Black Scat is proud to announce the publication of Mori’s Shattered Rainbow—a highly personal series which includes both paintings on x-rays and works on stretched canvasses in mixed media. This is the first book publication of the artist’s work in the U.S. The unique Black Scat edition is limited to 150 copies and can be ordered here.

Scattered Rainbow is a stage where emotions collide, splinter and re-animate. It reflects the artist’s belief that art is a mediator of the unspeakable.
