Forget the Luigi death stare.

"I wanna be your idea of perfect."

Jay Gatsby 

I really wish people would understand that this, this statement, is the downfall of Jay Gatsby. This is not desirable. This book is a warning that you can’t ask someone for this. It’s not enough for Jay that Daisy loves him he needs her to say she never loved Tom. He wants it to be perfect he wants her to see he is perfect. Nothing is perfect ever. Just stop this idea of love that you have to be perfect because you don’t and you can’t be.

Curator’s Monday 155 - Artist on Tumblr

Alyssa Monks | on Tumblr (b.1977, USA)

Brooklyn-based artist Alyssa Monks is a figurative painter, blurring the line between abstraction and realism. “Using filters such as glass, vinyl, water, and steam, I distort the body in shallow painted spaces. These filters allow for large areas of abstract design - islands of color with activated surfaces - while bits of the human form peek through. In a contemporary take on the traditional bathing women, my subjects are pushing against the glass “window”, distorting their own body, aware of and commanding the proverbial male gaze. Thick paint strokes in delicate color relationships are pushed and pulled to imitate glass, steam, water and flesh from a distance. However, up close, the delicious physical properties of oil paint are apparent. Thus sustaining the moment when abstract paint strokes become something else. When I began painting the human body, I was obsessed with it and needed to create as much realism as possible. I chased realism until it began to unravel and deconstruct itself, I am exploring the possibility and potential where representational painting and abstraction meet - if both can coexist in the same moment.” Monks’s paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions, and her work is represented in public and private collections.
