After Another After highlights Montejo’s exploration of material and process over the past two years. This solo exhibition relates to the subtleties of how memory and time is composed and the way in which it is subject to a constant process of deformation and reformation.
The three bodies of work presented play off the word “after,” with mixed media works entitled Aftermath, oil paintings called Afterthought, and monotypes named Hereafter. Each series evolved sequentially, one leading to the next and after another. Montejo’s style can be referred to as “gestural painting,” which in Spanish translates to “gesto”--to move or be moved.
