The story of
Karen & Tony Barone's
LoveMonsters
.
LoveMonsters are original works of art created from the fertile imagination of artists KAREN & TONY BARONE. The Barone’s witty and humorous depiction of their strange and comical LoveMonsters and their convoluted and twisted words and phrases are vehicles for commenting, reflecting and satirizing our times...a sort of tongue-in-cheek self anthropology.

The origin of these graphically-complex, androgynous creatures was inspired by a figurative image in a mosaic tile floor discovered by the Barones while visiting the Roman ruins of Pompeii. The image haunted them for more than two years until it started showing up in their work. Today’s LoveMonsters in their current and evolutionary form are graphically very far removed from the ancient Pompeian mosaic, however, they retain much of its ancient spirit.

Tony began drawing LoveMonsters as verbal & visual puns in his wheat-paper drawing pad to entertain Karen on the globe trotting couples long flights.

The Barones' brightly colored and brilliantly clever, witty and humorous,
"LoveMonsters interpret language literally . . . therefore, they misinterpret almost everything...and get it wrong every time."

“LOVE MONSTERS AREN’T SCARY... THEY’RE JUST MISUNDERSTOOD”... an art book about art that is art.
