Monique Mouton is a painter who uses lyrical color and soft figuration in her work, calling to mind stain painting, color field painting, shape as medium painting, abstract landscape painting, and provisional painting. Her fuzzy forms, marks, edge-play, rips, drips, blank spaces and washy moods give her work a unique sense of ambiguity.

Mouton completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver, British Columbia and her Master of Fine Arts at the Milton Avery Graduate School at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. Mouton has exhibited widely nationally and internationally with exhibitions at Natalia Hug, Cologne; Klemm’s, Berlin; Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver; Galeria Mascota, Mexico City; Ottawa Art Gallery, Ottawa; Fourteen30, Portland; Simon Lee, New York; Gladstone Gallery, New York; Metro Pictures, New York; Wallspace, New York; Cleopatra’s, Brooklyn; and many more. She lives and works in New York, NY.

Born 1984, Fort Collins, Colorado. Lives and works in New York, NY
