In Untitled (Standing Figure) Matthew Monahan dissects the human form into a gelatinous coagulation of undulating lines. Using red ink to sanguine effect, Monahan’s drawing evolves with almost a comic horror as pink smudges, fluidy stains, and congealed puddles replicate gore with an indulgent splendour. The revulsion of Monahan’s figure, however, lies in its aberrant physiognomy. The entangled sticky mesh mutates the familiar into something barbaric and estranged as the solidity of muscle and bone is transformed into an oscillating glutinous mass.
