Designed by Japanese artist and designer Tokujin Yoshioka, this agravic table stands between two prisms, defying gravity.

“The installation sees the past, present and future interact in a dialogue through marble, conveying a tangible expression of the fluidity and elusiveness of time.”

These colorful handcrafted works of art are the creations of Monica Rodriguez. Monica is a professional artist, illustrator, jewelry designer, art teacher and art portfolio consultant.

“My work is all handmade, carefully handcrafted using colored paper, glue and varnish, all recycled, re-purposed materials. I would describe it as paper manipulation on found object or canvas. Mostly depicting animals but primarily color on canvas.  My work is spiritual and I work intuitively choosing all my colors and steps based on feelings while meditating and focusing on nature. My primary focus is to make people stop and enjoy color, life, culture and fall in love with art without a need for content or any personal agenda.” We are totally feeling the vibes of Monica’s upbeat sculptures!

Monica can be found in her Brooklyn studio and teaching art at local events in New York. Visit her site here to see more work.
