Eric Dean Gallery Reception- Visiting Artist Monika Meler
In Mine, Yours, Ours Monika Meler explores ideas related to the Anthropocene. The series of work suggests that humans can only love that which they touch, build, or are responsible for making. There is clearly a contradiction between what is valuable and what humans, value. This contradiction defines the Anthropocene, a geological term for the age of humans, or more specifically the impact that humans have had on the earth especially through global warming, industrialization, and colonization.
Meler explores this contradiction through her process. Using printmaking, papercuts, and collage she incorporates shapes that resemble rocks, pieces of earth, or natural forms and images that were made from domestic objects intended to imitate nature, to examine the root of the problem of “value,” in its many manifestations and forms. Meler is interested in examining how we value the objects in our homes that are meant to mimic or celebrate nature while actual natural environments are left to perish.
Originally from Brodnica, Poland, Monika Meler earned her B.F.A. from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. She continued studies at Purdue University, where she earned an M.A., followed with an M.F.A from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. While at Tyler, she spent a year studying in Rome, Italy.
Meler completed residencies at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Connecticut, the Frans Masereel Center in Belgium, the Cork Printmakers in Ireland and the Women's Studio Workshop in New York. Solo exhibits include Liminal Passages at Longwood College in Virginia, The Distance Between at the Limerick Printmakers Gallery in Ireland and Contain/Retain at the Cocoon Gallery in Kansas City. Currently Monika is Associate Professor at the University of Saint Francis, Fort Wayne, IN.
