José Monet  Multimedia installation: 

2017

Thanks to the Terra foundation, Figueroa lived in close proximity to Claude Monet’s estate for nine weeks: tracing his lineage to the Impressionist brand while connecting his practice to Japanese sensitivities. Drawing his surroundings on the daily, he studied Monet’s grave, gardens and house while chasing the painter’s subject matter in Etretat, Rouen and London. During this time, he produced a hundred of drawings, six paintings, an artist book, an array of souvenirs, and a collaborative documentary with French artist Rebecca Digne. He is currently working on producing an essay that compiles his experiences living on a site of perpetual self-reflection.
