Threading activism and art through her life-size cutouts and prints, Callie Curry, known as Swoon, engages the same wheat-pasting technique seen in her earlier street art. Swoon’s 'Monica' is an imaginative portrait of a female figure amidst indistinguishable chaos. With frantic, scratch-like line-work and selective color blocking in shades of grey and black, the striking female subject fights to overcome struggle and internal turmoil.

Swoon, born Caledonia Dance Curry, (American, b. 1977) is a contemporary street artist and activist. In both her art and life, she focuses on humanitarian efforts. In 2009 at the Venice Biennial, Swoon and a crew of thirty of her artist friends sailed boats made of reclaimed materials through the canals to show how the biennial detritus could be recycled and used for both artistic and functional purposes.
