DIVERSITIES: DENNIS MONTERA


Dennis 'Sio' Montera works in non-coventional media like asphalts, industrial texture coatings, and acylics that result in process-oriented abstract works. His collection of art pieces combine formalist readings with contextual methodologies that logically arrive at a meaningful connection between art and life. The artist constantly seeks to expand his aesthetic forms through material explorations and discovery of technique.

The question of creating ‘form’ in relation to a predetermined appearance and meaning became the central criteria in the development of Sio Montera's early abstract works. The artist currently works on the premise of dissociating the process of image-making from any pre-conceived idea, and to let form and content emerge out from the painting process itself. The arbitrary content of the work through a title is often attached last.

Sio Montera’s abstractions are mostly direct configurations of paint masses, expressive force of texture, and color modulations characterized by a careful balance between spontaneous gesture and continual control. Having spurned conceptual design that leads to picture-making, the elements are delicately worked up in alternating sequences with great force and a sense of immediacy to 'free' form from pretty pictorial illusionism and attain a post-painterly equilibrium in art.
