Monica Zeringue

Works by Monica Zeringue, an adjunct at UNO where I will be starting the MFA program this fall. Her works instantly grasped my attention with their detailed and minimal rendering and an impending sense of time. They have a peaceful atmosphere of waiting, restructuring and growth.

"The girls exist in a world devoid of any reference to time or location, as in a partially recalled dream or memory...They split apart, merge, and rearrange as a way of exploring identity and change. The work is about “becoming” something new, something solid and strong...the girls are stacked on top of each other, creating new structures, becoming something different. They remain unaware of each other, and maybe even themselves. The almost patterned repetition of poses emphasizes a “stuck” feeling, a sort of glitch in time. Yet their hair keeps growing. In fact, the hair has many functions. It connects the girls to each other, shows growth, change and movement, and actually can become something new, while the girls seem to be stagnant, motionless structures."
