Savannah College of Art and Design Presents Works From Renowned Artists Monica Cook and Lavar Munroe, and Educational Tours at Art Central 2018

February 1, 2018 Attraction No Comments Email Email

Savannah College of Art and Design Hong Kong (SCAD HK) returns to Art Central this year as the event’s educational partner, with works from SCAD alumnus Monica Cook and Lavar Munroe. The pieces will be showcased at booth F20 and representatives from SCAD Hong Kong will conduct daily tours of the art fair. The event is open to the public with the purchase of an Art Central ticket.

Cook and Munroe’s artworks will be showcased alongside world-class works from established names from across Asia and the globe. While working in idiosyncratic ways formally and conceptually, both artists explores aspects of the uncanny in their works, and shifts their practice between painting and sculpture.

Monica Cook is known for her enduring practice exploring intimacy and reverence for the broken, the exposed, and the vulnerable. Describing herself as a scavenger, her work is comprised of found objects, that are reconfigured and made into surprising and uneasy compositions. Whilst bordering on the grotesque, the artist creates narrative works that elicits pathos and empathy.

Lavar Munroe’s painting practice incorporates elements of assemblage and collage, with composite pieces stitched and glued into a larger whole. Anthropomorphic figures that vacillate between the playful and macabre are the central motifs of his large-scale canvases. Often incorporating found and discarded materials, Munroe creates rich, painterly works that foreground his interest in history, anthropology and sociology.
