The ceramic works of Monika Debus move silently between abstraction and representation while balancing on the cusp of painting. Their primary strength lies in a basic universal vocabulary. Combinations of simple forms, spontaneously painted with elementary signs evoke a multitude of associations as individual entities.
A salt-glaze finish gives the surface of the works a subtle depth which enhances their originality as well as their mystical aura.
The pieces unveil a private cosmos to the viewer while remaining reminders of instinctive bodily movements.
