Born From Ruins

Born From Ruins

MONICA CANILAO: Born From Ruins

‘I live in my heart, my head, in the past and in the future all at once. My body feels as if it has seen a hundred million years and yet is new. I miss everyone I have ever loved at every moment. The universe is so large and unforgiving that all we can do is hold on and take care of one another…because in the end we are just dust and more dust, born from ruins.’ – Monica Canilao, 2014

Paintings, collage, mixed media works and installations of Monica Canilao emerge along with her site-specific work, found objects, paper works, quilts and photographs, telling the story of eternity, universe and everlasting cycles of spiritual life. Born From Ruins will be the first Los Angeles exhibition for the Oakland based artist, presenting a vast and diverse collection of her work, of which the Shibari themed photography will be shown for the first time in public.

Desolate Heart

Desolate Heart

from the ‘The Madonna’
The Makerie Studio
photography by Luke Kirwan

This core theme surrounds the Madonna and her desolate heart; she is within reach of this symbol of love, but irreconcilably set apart from it, forever confined to a half life, maybe even a preserved death.
