Featured Artist: Monique Lassooij

Featured Artist: Monique Lassooij

Artist Statement:
My vision is to maintain the integrity of my art while deleting as much superfluous detail as possible.
Telling all of the story can be fun, but most of the time it is just distracting. I hone in to the details that inspire me to create”

About the Artist:
Monique Lassooij was born and raised in The Netherlands and moved several years ago to Miami, Florida.
Her paintings hang in numerous private collections in the US and abroad.

In The Netherlands Ms. Lassooij started out as an abstract painter but over the years she developed a passion for figurative painting.
After having studied with Dutch artists such as Pien Hazenberg and Henk Hubenet, she attended the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in
The Hague and has gone on to receive several commissions and can be found in public places such as the Town Hall of the city of
Scheveningen in The Netherlands.

“My work explores the paradox in modern pop culture and society, sometimes clearly visible and sometimes through an underlining
dichotomy interjected with humor.”

Ms. Lassooij finds her inspiration in colors and how those colors affect the subject whether she is painting on canvas, wood or a wall.
Her subjects are often not placed within a context-giving background, allowing a single or combination of colors and geometric shapes to
illuminate the chosen topic.

Currently she is working on her series “Proprietary Innocence” in which she portrays famous figures as today’s unhappy/unsatisfied children using a very limited color pallet.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    hints? Kudos!

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same
    subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

    Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be
    at the web the simplest factor to keep in mind of. I say to you,
    I certainly get annoyed while folks think about concerns that they
    plainly do not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other people
    could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
    Thank you
