Todd Monaghan, 2017, 87.5" x 128" x 2.5", gesso, acrylic, oil pastel, egg shells on canvas.
Cattail was the largest black and white painting until Monaghan's recent triptych CASM Portal. This diptych premiered at Miami Basel in 2019 at the SLS South Beach. This piece features the flow of cattails, a subject near and dear to Monaghan who grew up on the marches of slower lower Delaware on the east coast of the United States. This piece is made with egg shells and gesso and \explores space, light and flow.
