Jonathan MONK replays, recasts and re-examines seminal works of Conceptual and Minimal art by variously witty, ingenious and irreverent means. Through wall paintings, monochromes, ephemeral sculpture and photography he reflects on the tendency of contemporary art to devour references, simultaneously paying homage to figures such as Sol LeWitt, Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman and Lawrence Weiner, while demystifying the creative process. Monk is constantly asking ‘what next?’ His stainless steel series entitled Deflated Sculpture (2009) refigures Jeff Koon’s iconic balloon rabbit in various stages of collapse; letting the air out isn’t an act of iconoclasm so much as giving the original idea new life. So too Monk documented the period he lived in Los Angeles with a series of photographs titled None of the Buildings on Sunset Strip (1997–99), showing only the roads between buildings—a follow-up to Ed Ruscha’s artist book from 30 years before, All of the Buildings on Sunset Strip. But his conceptual configurations are also grounded in the personal: ‘what next?’ takes on a poignancy in the slide projection In Search of Gregory Peck (1997), where Monk brought together a collection of photographs taken by his late father in the 1950s, preceding him as a tourist in the US. Recent solo exhibitions include Vox, Montreal, Canada (2017); The Gallery at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK (2017); Kunsthaus Baselland, Muttenz, Switzerland (2016); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma, Rome, Italy (2015); Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), Dublin, Ireland (2014); Kunstraum Dornbirn, Austria (2013); Palais de Tokyo and Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris, France (2008); and The Institute of Contemporary Art, London, UK (2005). His work has been included in many group exhibitions, including the Whitney Biennial (2006), the 50th and 53rd Venice Biennales (2003, 2009), Berlin Biennale (2001) and Taipei Biennial (2000). He was awarded the Prix du Quartier Des Bains, Geneva in 2012. Born in Leicester in 1969, Monk lives and works in Berlin.

Raul GUERRERO, born 1945, Brawley, CA, creates paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, artist’s books, photographs, and videotapes. He has forged an expansive, ever-evolving body of work that combines technical innovation; critiques of symbolic power; historical and literary references; and his personal perspective as an American of Mexican ancestry. From the mid 50s to 1960s, weekly family visits to Tijuana introduced him to a variety of Mexican folk arts and crafts as well as the popular tourist items. Exposure to Zapotec textiles, indigenous hand-painted pottery, blown glass from the interior of Mexico, and plaster of Paris replicas of da Vinci’s Last Supper, all provided an introduction to a visual and sensual world beyond the working class environment of post-war San Diego and its limited artistic and cultural offerings. At the same time, an incredible array of pop and sub-cultures were evolving in Southern California, particularly in Los Angeles: hot rod car-culture, pachucos, surfers, the beat generation, folk music, motorcycle gangs, and immigrants from Latin American and the Pacific Rim. The changing zeitgeist would influence Guerrero’s artistic work for years to come. Guerrero trained at the Chouinard Art Institute (BFA 1970). Guerrero has exhibited nationally and internationally in numerous solo and group shows at venues such as the Long Beach Museum of Art (1978), Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (1998), and the CUE Art Foundation, New York (2010). He received an NEA Photography Fellowship in 1979, and was the first recipient of the San Diego Art Prize in 2006. He currently teaches in the Visual Art Department at the University of California, San Diego.
