Joy II | Monique Leliefeld | Abstract Painting

Monique painted the series painting with one simple idea in mind. Paint something that sparks joy. Even though the core is a simple task, actually painting something that makes your heart skip a beat is an amazing feat. Standing in front of anyone of the paintings named: Joy of Life, is a simple delight. A marvellous attesting to Monique's unique skill, to capture fleeting emotions in abstract paintings. Often we know abstract paintings can be painted in grand gestures, but Monique is meticulous in her style. She works ages on a painting, just to get the tone right. She uses her painting technique that we usually associate with meticulous oil paintings as a way to capture emotion in all of her paintings.



The work has a black background with varying tones of yellow and orange circular and oval shapes clustered together predominantly in the lower part of the canvas. The weight of the forms is predominantly lower left.
Monique wanted to spark joy in her work and did that through the stark contrast between the varying tones of a warm yellow and orange against a stark and deep black background. The background can be described as black, but on closer inspection, it is a deep black, created by Moniques expert layering and painting technique.
