Monserrat is inspired by the burnished colors of classic Italian fresco painting: juicy grapefruit and apricot laced through with green leaves and an unusual, fresh setting plaster note. Luscious and radiant. A fresh burst of green over musky grapefruit and osmanthus. Named after a paint color, Monserrat debuted at Jancar Jones Gallery, Los Angeles. It appeared with paintings in soft green, warm ochre and dusty orange. I was thinking of worn and repainted urban walls and the matte surfaces of Italian fresco painting, which is the origin of the fantasy note “setting plaster.”
