About Carmen Montero

In my work you can see the mood of the environment around reelected, we can see exterior and interior spaces where characters appear to provide an intimate character.

The risky use of color is one of the most characteristic features of my paintings, even near the “fauvist style”
Mixed technique brings to the work a richness of textures creating a disturbing and subjective atmosphere of everything that interest me reflect.

Troughtout my career concern for study of light, it remains one of my main motivations of my work.

This evolution can be seen along the different solo and collective exhibitions within the national and international territory.
