Monique Thomas

Monique Thomas was born in Algeria in 1949. In 1962 she emigrated to France and now lives in Alicante, Spain.

In Marseille she began her artistic training at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. In 1978 she went to Paris to work and teach painting. Since 1980 she has dedicated herself exclusively to painting. When Monique Thomas begins to paint a picture, it is never done with grand gestures. But on the contrary. Rather, she is preparing for an "archaeological dig". She has to touch and mark the canvas, leaving traces on it, even before she begins to paint. It mixes the past with the present to get into the future. The painters who inspire her often come from Art Brut.



Her absolute role model is Antoni Tápies, whom she admires for the power of his work, the boldness of his choice of materials and the great freedom of his art. For them, art is life. And life is rough, dented, ugly and beautiful. Everything starts with an intuition, even with a strong emotion. Then it is a question of exploring the inner power that is offered to her. To discover them and to tame them. Painting is an open door for Monique Thomas. One door to another.
