all artworks by Monica Majoli.
Born in 1963, lives in Los Angeles (California)

Monica Majoli's figurative paintings from the early 1990s to the present have depicted scenes of sexual fetishism— painstakingly actuated self-portraits with dildos or claustrophobically populated representations of S&M encounters between men. But she focuses less on the transcription of physical experience than on the suggestion of its most obdurate, if ineffable, psychological aspects and ramifications. Investigating themes and rituals of identity, intimacy, and mortality, Majoli's work is both a site for catharsis and an admission of its irresolution.
from 2006 Whitney Biennal's catalogue
