Marc Monzó lives and works in Spain. He studied jewellery, engraving and sculpture at the Massana School in Barcelona and has had his work represented and shown internationally since 1997. Working directly with materials such as gold, silver, steel and plastics, he explores a fascination with everyday objects and their interconnecting relationships. His most recent exhibitions with Gallery Funaki have included 2013’s New Edition and his joint 2012 show with Kiko Gianocca, On Second Thoughts.
“The craft provides a base. Jewels are the tool, the larger project lies in the attempt to understand. Pieces appear according to the most immediate needs, which turn the manipulated matter into a map of reality.”
