<em>Ansonia</em>
 

Jonathan Monaghan
Ansonia, 2015
From the series Gotham
Dye sublimation on aluminum, wood frame
66 x 45.5 in / 167.6 x 115.6 cm, framed
Edition of 3

From a series of prints entitled Gotham, which twist 19th century luxury New York apartment buildings into otherworldly vignettes, Ansonia re-imagines a Beux-Arts façade as a kind of skin. Cut open, the architectural flesh reveals a luxurious, sci-fi interior. Psycho-sexual, seductive, and also menacing, the work evokes collective fears surrounding wealth and power.
