Monica Zeringue is an illustrator who is based out of New Orleans, Louisiana.
“My drawings are all self-portraits. I use images of myself, often reduced to a prepubescent form, in multiples. The girls exist in a world devoid of any reference to time or location, as in a partially recalled dream or memory. I am exploring identity, as I return myself back to a time of possibility: still innocent, but at the brink of change. But, as in the workings of memory, where time is compressed, stretched out, folded over and rearranged, these girls shift between prepubescent and fully mature, sometimes in the same work.”
