Succi2009 by Monica Cook

“I love to paint flesh, fascinated by how history is trapped in the skin, the stories told in lines etched into faces, bruises and scars from their past. I find myself heightening the details on and in the flesh, which enhances the mortal presence of the sitter and creates a tension between the psychological complexity of the person and their raw humanness.”–Monica Cook
