"Clar Monaco's monumental expressionistic figure paintings are overtly magical and ritualistic. His work is about protection from and cleansing of

evil. The four figures in "Drawing Circles" are each engaged in surrounding

themselves with protective circles, and one of them has already been

set aflame".
