Monique Lacey is a sculpture artist. The embrace of a baroqueness of surfaces is a driving force in her practice. The work attempts to investigate how ascetic restraints can be pushed against to reveal complexity of both surface and form, all the while remaining indebted to that asceticism. Cardboard boxes purchased at local hardware stores offer structural propositions of both volume and surface. The boxes are assembled and covered with plaster and other materials, then the initial building up of each form is countered by a crushing act that results in the form being either destroyed or substantially reconfigured.
