Mònica Subidé

Between estramonium flowers

Born in Vilassar de Mar in 1974, Mònica Subidé studied at the Escola Massana in Barcelona, ​​where she developed her art and technical tools with an eminently self-taught character. The Catalan artist has exhibited both individually and collectively in various European cities and around the world such as Paris, Oslo or Taiwan.

"Between flowers of estramonium", is a collection of the most recent works of the artist, a sample formed by a set of pieces that speak of the moment where she is currently, and as she says in her own words; "A kind of suffocating ecstasy, full of change and blind beauty, three years trying to talk about how beautiful and painful it is to live, looking inward and delving into memory, among wild animals, enchanted forests, carnivorous flowers and impassive gardens, childhood... "

With his work she creates an art in which she maintains a special relationship with nature; identifying itself with animals such as herons, reindeer, owls, butterflies or fish. Figures that for her are a reference and speak of history and memory. Figures that have been present in ancestral images, from mythological to contemporary and that, throughout their manifestations, are a testimony that has been embodied in multiple works in the history of art, especially in painting. They are images that speak of an impassive world that has remained and belonged to humanity throughout the centuries.

Through these pieces, her search is part of another era, becoming a journey to remote landscapes with which she tries to enter in a reality that seems to vanish in the emotion of memory. Images full of nature, flora and animals that reflect the unsettling passage of time, and with it, that of life itself.
