POP UP #1
Multidisciplinary artist with a taste for the aesthetic and the architectural, self-taught, Mariett Monfort generates her own patterns in the course of the creative process. As a child the world of images was always a safer and more solid space than was the world of words, thus enabling the ideal means to spin the artist's multiple and contradictory personalities, at times intuitive and at others conceptual.
Formed in the Art Students League in New York, which counted among its students Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, Mariett has exhibited individually and collectively in Spain, Mexico, the United States and Italy. She is currently working on a new pictorial series entitled "My Brain" in which she intends to make a "universe" of the chaos of thoughts in order to better know herself and thusly make herself known, as well as attain the success achieved in her photography installation project, "Almas Geometricas".
At the age of 23, Mariett Monfort (Madrid, 1983) moved from Spain and entered the world of marketing and advertising. Her career first took her to Paris and then to New York, where her work with different photographers and creatives led her to make a connection with the art world.
In 2010 Mariett exhibited her first photography installation in Madrid and attained great success, encouraging her to pursue her artistic and creative side which she professionalized during her three-year stay in Mexico City.
In Mexico, in addition to discovering another world full of color and new experience and learning from its culture and landscapes, she completed a Master's degree in photography lighting, concurrently developing her most successful project to date,
"Almas Geometricas". The diversity in cultures, landscapes and languages are reflected in her work, shown either through small figures devoured by large spaces, or through mixtures of abstract elements that contrast with the figurative, suggesting the presence of being and the budding soul: on the one hand, fragile and vulnerable whereas on the other firm and strong before the apparent meaningless of existence until the search for light or a safe path.
In 2016, again in New York, Mariett discovered her talent for painting while studying under the guidance of her mentor, American painter Ronnie Landfield.
Since then, she has focused on her pictorial work, although never abandoning photography and the other disciplines being explored...sculpture...
