One to One

Enter the world of Liv Aanrud. A type of meditative escape, her paintings invite you into the abstract by combining traditional folk methods of weaving. Growing up on a small Wisconsin farm, her roots have blossomed to create intricate pieces that span some 40 ft in length at times.

Monster Children hosted a solo exhibition titled "Weirder Mirror" of Liv's work and performance by Laura Stone at 1700 Naud in Los Angeles January 17th, 2020

W I N G S P A N - Meditation I

‘The gentlest touch, the softest spark can build a powerful vortex of potential energy.’ Wingspan is a meditative time based light experience. This project premiered at the opening for ‘Magick is Afoot’ a group art show at Arvia LA for two separate performances each approximately one hour in duration. Fusing the acts of drawing and animation, Ryan P. Griffin of Projected Visions was present creating rhythmic meditative lines in sets that pulsed and breathed. This simple yet dynamic process built in complexity over time to a soothing and contemplative soundscape, an audio recording of Jack DeJohnette’s – Music in the Key of Om and Peace Time.
