since the history of adornment is nearly as old as the history of humanity and because of my pronounced attraction to the simple beauty of minimal primitivism… enters my adoration for the work of monies. the astounding combination of raw materials and scale reinforces this aesthetic without being crude; the sincerity of the materials and the ethic it represents is arranged in an unexpected fashion that makes every piece a profound statement of nature’s beautiful power. i believe it is this naturalistic synergy with the careful workmanship which brings these unique and abstract pieces to life in a fantastical way that evokes a nostalgia of a lost ethnicity or a mythical civilization.
