Joel Monty (American, 20th Century): The Modern Human, 2011. Acrylic on canvas , signed lower right.

Joel's work concentrates on the personal pains of life and the duality of his own nature. He uses the creative process to escape his own very destructive behavior. In his compositions you may notice a lot of ebb and flow, push and pull, a collision of shapes and colors—all representative of one trying to tear apart the other. Many of his paintings display vivid palettes, a false perception of a man ultra-sensitive to the world around him.

24 x 18 inches canvas.

Private collection, New England, USA.


Excellent condition with light grime around the edges; corners are very lightly worn.
