Monika’s painting feature’s surfacing and receding shapes as metaphors for how energy and matter temporarily become visible before dissolving back into a state of pure potential.
Monika has always been fascinated with the visual language of circular and organic forms as they suggest that all creative events simultaneously contain continuity and transition. She says that “each composition creates a balance that is exquisitely poised while at the same time, powerful, dramatic and serene.”
Hearts in San Francisco Project
The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists and auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.
The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.
