Monroe takes the virtue out of painting, replacing paint with collaged materials ranging from paper, vinyl, carpet, and linoleum. Through this construction process Monroe lends a sense of solidity to his image, literally building a space which isn’t there. It’s a way of cheating at image-making: readymade colour fields fill in his hand-drawn pattern, creating a painting without rendering.
