Brendan Monroe


"Forming Clouds” alludes to the history of modern information exchange, from early punched tape telegraphy to the 1s and 0s of computer code—and nods to the engineers who work to advance and secure cloud computing.

The endless transitions between atmospheric accumulation and dissipation inspired the cloud-like shapes in the diptych. Monroe’s paintings are often site-specific and are tailored to the architecture of the buildings they exist in; here, he considered the mural’s lofty top-floor destination in the Wilkinson Building when plotting its design.
