Guided by an interest in deepening one’s understanding of place, Monica Lundy threads together historical research and studio practice. Her curiosity about lesser-known histories is paired with her curiosity about unconventional painting practices. While her thematic focus revolves around subjects who exist on the periphery of society—and places whose histories have become obscured over time—Lundy’s technique focuses on the space in which an image breaks down into obscurity or physical degradation. Lundy’s mixed-media paintings bridge painting and installation, abstraction and figuration.  Her work ruminates upon the dispossessed, memory, and the corrosive nature of time. 

Lundy was a recipient of the Jay DeFeo Award in 2010, a SFMOMA SECA Nominee in 2012.  Her work has been featured in ARTnews, The Huffington Post, Visual Art Source, The San Francisco Chronicle, SF Weekly, and Square Cylinder, among other publications.  She lives and works in Oakland, California.
