Opening reception: March 14th 6-9pm
Monica Schenini is a psychoanalyst and an artist. She resides and works in the city of Mar del Plata, Argentina.
She calls the space where she produces her art “Between Patients”
This defines the way she works; the significance of her art being the result and the echo of what she listens in the intimacy of her therapy sessions.
“Me rompiste el corazón” acrylics on canvas, 39inch x 39inch
“Psychoanalysis is a laborious path that leads us to the search of longing, of desire. And while we go through that road we find pieces of our history that we thought were lost. They connect us with the deepest emotions, with the world of passions, with our fears and our ghosts. I explore within my art trying to bring to a public space the intimacy of inner worlds. I want my paintings to provoke a response, a reaction. Showing my pieces to others breaks the everyday logic.
My art is a thought that joins with life itself, but with another, different language: more daily, more happy.”
Life weaves in silence; I feel the threads waving canvasses of strange colors; events I could only sense become closer...
