Born in Brazil, Mona Kuhn currently resides in Los Angeles. Through intimacy with her subjects, knowledge of traditional iconography, and technical mastery, Kuhn portrays the complexities of human nature, both tempting and provoking the viewer’s imagination.
“Bushes and Succulents is my artistic response to the ongoing currents in contemporary feminism. Reminiscent of Georgia O’Keefe’s floral paintings, your eyes wander around the graceful lines, not knowing exactly what you are looking at. The images titled “Bushes” are a celebration of the female essence, the aunaturel crown, confident, raw, elegant yet confrontational and unapologetic. The solarization process reveals human imperfections, not only in the metallic brilliance of the skin, but also brings to the surface our struggles, our strengths, our power." - Mona Kuhn
