J. Monaghan, Latet Anguis I
“I am an artist working across a range of media including prints, sculpture and computer animated video to produce otherworldly objects and narratives.
Drawing on wide-ranging sources such as historical artworks and science fiction, my surrealistic pieces uncover subconscious anxieties associated with technology and consumerism.
Past exhibitions include The Sundance Film Festival, The Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, and The Palais de Tokyo in Paris. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, and The Washington Post.
This exclusive art piece “Latet Anguis” is a series of animations depicting colorful and luxurious fabrics turned into surreal vignettes. Furniture appears like a slithering snake alongside electronic devices and gilded architecture. Latin for "lurking snake'', the series drawing parallels between the decadence of the Baroque era and the excess of the digital age.”
