VICTOR MONTOYA

Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition
September 16 - October 7, 2014
Reception: Thursday September 18, 2014 6-8 PM

Victor Montoya’s fanciful acrylic paintings are an exhilarating mix of free-spirited abstraction and serious craftsmanship. Montoya paints condensed, cartoonish figures on stylized landscapes made of geometric hills and plains that don’t so much roll as interlock on top of each other, like facets on a diamond. A flock of birds appears as a tessellation. The skies are comprised of dabs, less rigid than the angular land below but still a texture not found in actual nature. The work is wildly imaginative yet highly ordered – an entire new world built from scratch. Though they exist in some otherworldly terrain, where often elements of interior and exterior as we understand them mesh, Montoya’s pieces give the impression of being soaked in sunshine. The palette is airy, even candy-colored, but expertly developed. And the subject itself is inevitably the glory of the land, as found in the pre-Colombian cultures of Montoya’s homeland.

Victor Montoya was born in Córdoba, Argentina and currently lives in Jujuy. He has exhibited all over the world, including Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
