Ariane Fairlie wrote about Caroline Monnet’s collage work in her Issue Seven portfolio:
Monnet is concerned with her dual Algonquin and French heritage. Her images are an opportunity and attempt to reconcile the two social and political identities. The viewer is forced to share in this process, struggling to make sense of the separate images. There is a sense that this is Monnet’s difficulty as well.
