Mona Kuhn – ‘She Disappeared into Complete Silence’

Mona Kuhn’s series ‘She Disappeared into Complete Silence’ – abstracting the present in a fusion of illusions where lines and shapes, light and shadows, delicate reflections and a single person blend into one along with the landscape of Californian desert.

The artist “turns in a highly austere and restrained reductionist geometry and distilled formal purity, connecting the interior to the exterior, the visible to the hidden. These reflections cause one to linger, as they merge to create a dynamic equilibrium of tension, space and rhythms.” (Salvador Nadales)

Mona Kuhn – ‘Private’

Mona Kuhn‘s series “Private“.

“The desert’s seductive threat is always there. It menaces from the edges. Look at the signature image of this book, a dusty room glimpsed out of focus through a glass door bearing the words ‘PRIVATE’ in reverse. A view of sultry enigma, a chamber beyond which the brightness of the sun is coming to devour everything and take the mystery with it” (from an essay ‘Stardust‘ by David Campany)
