With a potent blend of oil and gold leaf, Monique Passicotís small narrative paintings leave the viewer in awe of the elegant painting style and story that she brilliantly executes. The larger magnificent paintings presented this year, illustrate an unusual surreal tale of people masked as animals but with human anecdotal stories such as Craigslisters, and Dolores Park. These dreamlike paintings suggest a merging of opposites; man and woman, human and beast, past and future, and reality and illusion. Passicotís paintings read like poetry. Images, like words, should move us on a level that does not belong to the mind.
