The painting of Monica Menchella is an act of instinct in which the primitive idea of form leaves space to color and material. The faceless figures, boundless spaces are anonymous and involuntary subjects of a painting thick, high, wide and generous from the stretch.

Never similar to itself over the years has interpreted their emotions dipping into raw reality and realizing veils of hope that bring his works never to fall into an abyss of banal figurative sadness and loneliness but to calm and serene reflections on life.
