Mònica Subidé 莫妮卡.蘇畢迭

Mònica’s portraits emphasize her subject’s style, skin, subtle emotions, and daily lives. Every face is a character in of itself, each painting a story. She is particularly adept at creating strong composition using people, animals, plants, and still objects, mixing the tumultuous with the lonely and the passionate with the indifferent, combining to form a fascinating sense of incongruity and absurdity; whether overlapping large blocks of color or intentionally blank spaces, all leave plentiful room for imagination. As it is for the characters in “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, the prophecies have been revealed and the city has been washed away by a storm – yet even as the story ends, the portraits of each character live on within the reader.

Mònica believes feeling and perception are what will accompany us to the end, drawing us into a tunnel of childhood, pausing to savor unforgettable moments with family. Confusion at the adult world, playfulness and opposition between peers, pure and simple people and plants, a fantasy land reminiscent of Alice’s rabbit hole… all are brought to life through her hands. Layers of thick paint support an emotional outlet, seemingly offering an answer to solitude: nothing is worth hating. Break free from love and hate, break free from this curse of the heart – that is the key to dissolving loneliness.

藝術家莫妮卡繪製的人畜肖像,特別強調人物的造型、膚質、細微情緒與生活樣貌,每張臉都是活生生的角色,每幅畫都說著一個故事。她尤其擅長構圖,配置在畫面中的人物、動物、植物及靜物,混雜著喧囂與孤獨、熱情與淡漠,並帶點違和、荒謬的趣味。無論是以大片色塊交叉堆疊或是刻意留白,都予人極大的想像空間,就像《百年孤寂》裡的人物,儘管最後羊皮紙卷上的密語被解開,狂風暴雨摧毀了這座海市蜃樓,故事結束了,但畫中的人物肖像卻真實地活在觀者心裡。

莫妮卡的心裡住著一個小孩,她認為能陪伴我們終老的就是感覺和知覺,於是她走進童年的時光隧道,將回憶停格在與家族長輩、兄弟姊妹相處的難忘時光。那些對大人世界的迷惘與不解、同儕手足間的嬉戲與對立、人與動植物的單純美好,甚至沉溺在愛麗絲兔子洞的幻想…都在她的畫筆下顯現。一團團堆疊在皮膚上的油彩,承載著情緒的出口,彷彿為孤獨找到了答案:人生沒有值得痛恨的事,超乎愛恨,破除心中的魔咒,就是與孤獨和解。
