The mysterious world of MONICA CROESE


The beginning

Straightjacket * Hold me tight

Tenderness is weakness

Lick my wounds please

Les fleurs du mal

First design of this painting. Acrylics on canvas. The black is painted with black laquer. It's a pity you can't see it at the picture. How it shines. So the blak is shining and the flowers are dull. With reason. Tell me what you think....
Size: 18 x 24 cm

Kiss me goodnight

The expanding moment

Holy lonely demons


Glaring refelections. Is something going to happen?

Old sketches waiting to becomae paintings.

Inspired by medieval paintings

Perhaps this will become a painting.....

My insanity


Into the shades of the last hills

How do you dream?


Our magical world

Tell me; is it dark and lonely where you go to in your dreams?

We dance our life together

At that moment i had just given birth to my youngest son Emil.

Sunny thoughts

Give my sister strength

I made this drawing at the time it went very bad with my youngest sister. She struggled with alcohol and drugs addiction.


Topic: Is that blood on the floor?

Why 'Is that blood on the floor?' Blood is the symbol for life and in christian symbolism it also stands for salvation of mankind thru shedding the blood of Christ. The colour red has many meanings: warmth, love and passion, martyrdom. In the dark ages red was the colour of sin and destroying violence.
Ever since puberty women are conversant with blood. The deeper level in this work also contains the pain women often suffer from violence: physically as well mentally. But i didn't paint the women as sad martyrs though. They send out meeknes thru their vulnerability, but not in a passive way i think. I wanted to imagine strong women who despite their pain carry on their path of life with their head high.
I'm thinking about the form of this topic. Shall i print them, large sized? Or like photographs in a small book which i also work up so that the viewer get the feeling of a voyeur.
I've decided it will be a book with images and poems. I am working on a webshop so soon you can buy yourself some real Momo Luna art.
