/ Statement-CV
I declare myself amateur in the sense of loving what I do. Painting is for me the means that I have chosen to express my inner life and the reality that I see every day. In today's society there is a contradiction between what we are and what they tell us to be, that is why I rebel against the established. My work is beyond fashions and concessions.  What interests me most is experimentation and improvisation in the creation process; I usually get in front of the stand and let myself be carried away by what at that moment is happening to me, in an intuitive and liberating way, the so-called "techniques of chance" mainly dripping. I use acrylic paint on canvas base, recycled cardboard or PVC. I also incorporate collages of press cuttings, cardboard, old cards, etc. I like to go to traces and get images from other eras: images from the beginning of the last century; or from current press magazines. The idea is to incorporate them into a more abstract landscape, and thus give them a new meaning. My works provide a double reading: an initial plastic and a deeper one to discover, a game proposal so that the viewer can approach and observe to reach their own conclusions.

“In her acrylic on canvas paintings, Montseé brings those elements into a dynamic relationship, giving that interior life a vivid presence. She uses simple forms and gestures in her images, but the energy and power of her brushstrokes animate each line and curve. A simple vertical shape conjures up the image of a human figure on a street, or an undulating curve becomes a powerful representation of a dance. These paintings have an iconic quality that succinctly represents their subjects but does so in a way that stretches the boundaries of reality. That sense of taking something seemingly simple and teasing out its complexities extends to her colors. “I usually use white, red, black and yellow”, she says, and that concise palette lets her turn her attention inward to find a subtle kind of variety. “It is like watching a black-and-white film,” notes Montseé, which hints at the sense of movement and drama that gives her work its a great power” ...Angela Di Bello, Director Ágora Gallery, New York.
