Monika Edgar’s paintings emerge from childhood experiences in Lithuania, a small country on the southeastern edge of the Baltic Sea. Black and white TV, gray skies, peeling stucco buildings, long spells of rain in the summer, ironing brown wool school uniforms, mandatory parades, and Soviet movies about World War II. These images made Edgar long for color and sunshine, sketching, listening to the Beatles and making clothes.
