“The paintings of Tatiana Montoya embrace the academic tradition of Abstract Expressionism, and its’ canons of brilliant and contrasting color, the inspiration of nature and mystical landscape, and the language of metaphor and symbol. Montoya relies upon the physical primacy of the medium—metal-leaf papers and chemicals—to infuse meaning. The power of the image evokes the observer’s emotions and stimulates contemplative and controversial thought.”

“Montoya is covered in silver-leaf after attacking her painting with a brush, even before she has been attacked by the geometric language which marks its behavior. Her style and her manner confronts with a religious blindness and aesthetic creeds, but it competes in the fields of the intimate with the obsession of prays (golden) made to the God of time; the stages of knowledge are renewals in the corporality of faith”.
