Monique Robidoux creates abstract works that evoke light, depth, and striking juxtapositions of color. She tries to develop the surface in a way that becomes three dimensional - expanding beyond the flat plane of two-dimensional space. Effects such as texture, blurring, layering, transparency, and mixing mediums are all used in achieving her goals for each piece. She work in oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, and oil sticks, on a variety of surfaces including canvas, wood, paper, and yupo. Her forms are mostly organic, and live along with line, marks, and scumbling. Her continual inspiration is the spectrum of color wherever and however it makes itself visible to her.
Monique Robidoux received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Apparel Design and an MFA in Web Design New Media from the Academy of Art University. In tandem with her apparel and digital design career she has worked as an artist, creating portraits of people, animals, and homes in watercolor and mixed media. In recent years she developed a practice in abstract painting, having studied under Meredith Rosier at the Woodstock School of Art, Woodstock, NY. Her work hangs in many homes in the northeast and has been featured in group shows in Manhattan and in the Hudson Valley.
