Commentary by Milton Fletcher , NY Arts Magazine:
Monika Iatrou also investigates figuration and the body, but as a mode of questioning physical alienation.In her most compelling work, depicting a gaunt, angular human face with hollow eyes, she echoes a German Expressionist aesthetic, yet transcends it through a particularly postmodern perspective. Here she self-consciously emphasizes the subject-object looking relationship, making the subject (or viewer) painfully self-aware of his objectifying gaze of “the other”, resulting in a reevaluation of the hegemonic structures informing the looking relationship he participates in.
