Moises Monteferro: Spain 1963. Since 1994 based in New York. + These artworks are nothing but distance and poetry, and they are all that is needed + I am glad to have been a painter ("pain-t-er") for so long. I've been able to paint out all my pain. Pain always procedes art, in every persuit --> + monteferro@mac.com Born in Spain, 02/27/1963. New York based (USA) since the winter of 1994. M. Monteferro secured his place in the contemporary art during the early 1990s through his development of the technique of stain thinned painting and unusual pigments like café, fruits, soil and ashes poured directly onto bare, unprimed canvas, allowing the fluidity of the paint as it seeped through the canvas to animate his work.  There is often a tension in her work between negative and positive space, figure and ground, flatness and depth, abstraction and a hint of the reality, beauty and social denounce.  “The social denounce is the only promising work of art. The artistic violence is the only honest way. Instead of blood spread red oil. Instead of mourning, stain with black ink your hands. Instead of borders we need to paint endless landscapes where we can walk with no limit over the brown colors of the soil.” Moises Monteferro, 2003. “Hope against Hope” Exhibition Catalogue   Monteferro is widely considered to be one of most intriguing living artists.  Exhibition showcasing his work was held recently at the XPERIMENTART Center for the Arts, LOFT NINE Gallery, CHELSEART Gallery, all in New York. He was exhibited in Miami (ARTESANOS Gallery), Mexico City (Galeria MADRAS) and Milan (Galeria DICIANNOVE) and other art spaces.
