Todd Monaghan, 2021, 60"/75"/.2", gesso, acrylic, oil pastel, egg shells and resin on cardboard backed with bendy plywood.
Rear View Mirror is a quadriptych, meaning it is comprised of 4 individual panels that hang together as one. The piece was originated by Monaghan while doing a summer residency in Rehoboth Beach Delaware. Monaghan grew up on in lower "slower" Delaware on the east coast of the United States. This piece was originated on cardboard and sketched out with magic marker. It was later completed by Monaghan at his Upper Westside studio in New York City. Unique and the first in the black and white series in that it was created on cardboard with the continued use of egg shells for texture. It is the first black and white on paper finished with resin which gives it its shiny look unlike any other piece in the black and white series.
