Recurring images include clouds – strange, ringed, solid-looking clouds. They leak from the craters of volcanoes, or float menacingly above roads, the product, perhaps, of some nuclear explosion. Such is Monk's style. His paintings are mysterious and hallucinatory, but beautiful, too. Fans of the Canadian painter Peter Doig will, no doubt, be drawn to the dream-like enigma of it all.
This will be Monk’s first solo show at Pace Gallery. In recent months the gallery has favoured painters who walk the line between the figurative and the abstract, with solo exhibitions by a number of abstract artists, including the erotically charged works of Loie Hollowell. And this show promises to be just as thought provoking.
