Born in Miami and now living in Houston Venessa Monokian uses her work to investigate ideas about her environment. This inquiry is extended beyond just the tangible and introduces psychological elements as well as the final displayed of the work. How the viewer physically interacts with theses pieces is as much of the final experience as the works themselves. This experience becomes a partnership between Venessa, the work, and the person viewing it.
You can visit her work in the flesh at her studio at Box13 artspace in Houston, TX
