Ginger Mongiello Biography

 

Ginger Mongiello is an award winning Taos artist who has shown her work extensively from coast to coast. She works in several media, including drawing, painting, and ceramics. Her work spans a broad range of expression - from elegant porcelain vessels, to powerful black and white gestures on sumptuous paper which carve and activate space, to lush canvases layered with the energies of natural phenomena.

Ginger has had over eighteen one-person shows and has taught extensively in Michigan, Wisconsin, and New Mexico. In 1989 her work garnered a solo exhibition at the Muskegon Museum of Art, Muskegon, Michigan. Her work is featured in the corporate collections of Hyatt Hotels, Marshall Fields, Shell Oil, Automated Data Processing, and U.S. Gypsum. Her work is also in the permanent collections of the Albuquerque Museum; University of New Mexico Health Science Center; University of New Mexico Harwood Musem; Old Jail Art Center; and Muskegon Museum of Art. She is represented in significant private collections.

Ms. Mongiello holds a BFA degree from the University of Michigan and an MA from the University of New Mexico. She is an Instructor at the University of New Mexico-Taos, in the Holistic Health and Healing Arts program, and maintains a private practice in art therapy.

 

Artist's Statement:  Most of my work is inspired by my perceptions of nature and music. I have studied music since I was very young, and I see it as the most direct language of rhythm, form, and color, expressing the phenomena of the natural world. Painting, works on paper, collage, and ceramics are the modalities I choose. Each of these seems to call out to the others for a fluid interplay of ideas... a dance of color, gesture, line, darkness, and light.

As in a musical improvisation, the initial marks set the piece in motion. The image emerges from the impulse and gesture of the hand and body - dancing to the complex textures of sound. Other elements layer themselves onto the surface. Dissonance and harmony appear, disappear, and reappear in new combinations. My role in this process is to bring this dance into view by stepping into it as a participant - feeling kinesthetically the pulse and direction of each piece. Immersion. Navigation. Emergence...the hand and body movements become the channels for bringing felt energy into form.
