Monique Auricchio has developed a reputation based on a combination of highly developed printing skills and imaginative imagery. Her art is often whimsical and theatrical, creating dreamlike images in shadowy, semi-urban settings. The works are layered with allegorical and proverbial references, yet evoke a sense of the unfamiliar. The works of Monique Auricchio often feature animals infused with human sensibility. Birds provide the artist with a rich and abundant source of subject matter, as she explores the fragile and peculiar pecking order of the human and animal condition with satirical warmth and gentle humour.
