Study for "Hanging Rubberman #1", 2005, original lithograph with multiple plates, 22î x 30"
ed. of 20
Monica Majoli's artwork hauntingly engages issues of sexuality, mortality and transcendence. Since 1999, she has been creating an extensive series of watercolor and gouache drawings of men engaged in forms of fetish bondage that involves the wearing of rubber suits. For this print, Majoli has worked from one of her visually arresting images of a male subject suspended vertically in a harness. Her edition employs lithography printing techniques to capture the man's fluid, disembodied consciousness encased within the confining rubber skin.
Majoli earned her BA and MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles. She has exhibited extensively in the United States and throughout Europe. In addition, she has taught drawing and painting at numerous colleges and universities throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. She is represented by Gagosian Gallery. She is currently teaching painting at UC Berkeley.
