Monique Motiff's rich, moody landscapes are executed using a combination of oil, tar and many layers of beeswax, a technique she has
developed and perfected over many years. Spending time in Chicago, Illinois, after college, Motiff absorbed exciting new trends
and techniques in mixing media. Her travels between Chicago and Louisville in those years inspired her to not just copy the
scenery she saw along the highway but to transmit her feeling of the landscape in the context of home versus future, and to imbue
the skyscapes with literal and figurative texture and depth.
