This Friday sees the opening of a local solo exhibition for Rochester NY based artist St. Monci at Axom GalleryUniversal Magnetic will be a continuation of his abstract / geometric based works. Whilst the subject matter is undeniably of it’s time, there is a mid-century / modernist flavour present throughout this artist’s body of work.

Always using hard edges and straight lines in his patternation, St. Monci’s work is presented predominantly on paper in a pastel palette throughout; these soft hues complimented by the rounded corners of the paper he uses and the frames he hand-makes himself.
