The Layers collection is a study of structured composition and color dispersion.

Inspiration for the Layers collection stems from the geological time markers one can appreciate in sedimentary rock layers (i.e., geological strata) commonly found at coastal bluffs, quarries, and waterways. The distinct layers of the strata provide a glimpse into our dynamic environment, captured in time. Features of strata are reproduced by Montoya in a Layers painting, via a rendering process, where symmetric knife strokes of varying size, shape, and pattern abstractly compose a subject. The Layers collection primarily examines topics from the natural environment, which include: living and nonliving things.

Paintings belonging to the Layers collection possess a monochromatic essence, heavy texture, and complementary depth-dependent perspectives. For each artwork, a minimal color palette was chosen by Montoya that reflects the substance of each painting subject. Impasto (thick paint texture) provides distinct viewing perspectives and rich dimensionality that one can appreciate across different depths. At a distance, knife-strokes can appear as discontinuous wave-like features that geometrically interlace throughout the canvas; whereas, upon closer inspection, individual knife strokes can detail simple or complex color dispersions.

Nota bene – The oil painting does not extend around the edges of the gallery-wrapped canvas. Artwork is accompanied with a Signed Certificate of Authenticity. Rights and reproduction are retained by the artist.
