Newest Collection: HIATUS - Hiatus


20 February 2023


This week's new collection is HIATUS. Monitors of Modern Art is on indefinite hiatus. After nearly 8 years of posting a new collection every single week, we have unfortunately run fresh out of material. Updates will resume once we can put together more material and fill out a backlog. In the meantime, please feel free to enjoy the thousands of works already present in this gallery!

SPECTRAL SWORDSMAN


This is a very atmospheric work whose central figure is cloaked in what seems like fog, only its upper torso and head visible - and its sword. The work's lighting also reinforces its composition, darkening towards the center, and the texture and moire give depth and movement to the fog, all coming together to create a truly unique and impactful work.

GRADIENT IN STAGES


Gradient in Stages is a work that is unapologetically genuine in a way that almost no other work in this entire gallery can be, and which manages to be wholly unique in its compositional design. Very little of this work was manufactured after the fact - what you see is almost exactly what the monitor looked like before I took the photograph, and it remains, in my opinion, the most incredible monitor I have ever found.

DEEP POND


Why are ponds green? I dunno. But then, sometimes you just have to jump in, and maybe it'll make sense. This was the first work ever uploaded to Monitors of Modern Art, and serves as a strong start by presenting a simple, meaningful metaphor.

FAIRY DANCE


This is one of the gallery's earlier examples of pixel art, and one of the more composed works. Though quite coarse in texture, the color usage is good, with a lively yellow-peach gradient in the background, blue and cyan emphasizing the subjects of the work, and the magenta line segments help to create structure and give the work a sense of motion.

WARP


A fairly early work, Warp is one of the gallery's first instances of this sort of rough texture, and this texture still remains a rarity. A very abstract work, yet one with a definite measure of feeling behind it.
