Vilassar de Mar (Barcelona), 1974
Mònica Subidé was trained at the art school La Massana, where she had her first contact with the natural model. Subidé states that "if there is nobody, I feel misplaced." In her early years, her work focused on the fragmentation of the human body. However, in her later works, we see how she focuses on the portrait and the location of her characters in complex scenographies. In her work, we find clear artistic reminiscences to Louise Bourgeois and her obsession with the passage of time or Lucian Freud and his interest in discovering what lies beneath the flesh.
