FORMS OF HUMAN
Be and being in the world... Here are the genesis of what an artist searches and expresses in his work. Since prehistoric times, the concern has not been another. In Egypt, India, in China, in Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, during the Renaissance, in the century XX and still desire persists; renews, but does not change: is the search for human reality and man. No matter what denomination receives (classical, Renaissance, modern, figurative, Cubist, abstract), essentially goes beyond adjectives, classifications, currents and theories. Behind or at the bottom of any genuine, gear up in the seemingly more away from everyday life, in the immediate term, are the essence, shapes, color the vital breath of what human.
In this sample, Manuel E. Montilla offers - from a particular perspective, which mixes and reconciles disparate elements; these range from the figurative to abstract expressions - approximations to reality in continuous transformation (or decomposition). What catches your eye and hand casts to the consciousness of the Viewer is the dialectical interaction man - world. Today, of course man and world. Accordingly, in these works there figures, objects or entities that are not part of us and the world that surrounds us and sustains us.
Anxiety, violence, dreams, failures, utopias, ghosts are or underlying works. Contrary to some postulates that advocate a kind of psychological, relativism according to which each individual sees in works of art which he strikes as or prefer, in the viewer perceives that he himself is, what we all: beings in history, at the time, in the cosmos, hooligans to an inevitable, destination instances and bright, dark, flattering or tragic moments.
In synthesis, the Montilla artist proposes that we lying man and reality as they are: multi-purpose, multiple, simultaneously close and distant, ephemeral and infinite. Now, already facing works, each of us is now accept or reject this proposal.
