Monique Belitz – Landscapes – Artist Portfolio Magazine

When working on what I call “poems”, small pieces on cradled board, I am surrounded by a sea of torn drawings, paintings and prints, often eroded into tiny slivers. The magic starts, when my thoughts interact with the marks until they meld into a new reality that orders the world according to its idiosyncratic logic. Its own truth is communicated in tesserae of texture, colors and marks.
In my current work landscape functions as a map, a place where my concerns are situated. Contemporary human concerns, daily aroused by divisive and dehumanizing remarks by politicians, are my current themes: The plight of thousands of refugees around the world in need of a helping hand and a place to recover their humanity and dignity. Whether they are fleeing from Syria or relocated in Lincoln, my artwork wants to stress their humanity, embrace their cultural diversity and offer them a voice.
