Recent work by Malaquías Montoya
Exhibition catalog produced in conjunction with Montoya's traveling exhibition Globalization and War - the Aftermath. The full-color catalog features charcoals, collages, silkscreen images, paintings, and related research dealing with the inhumanity and the unspeakable acts of war, corporate globalization, and its resulting displacement. In this body of work, Montoya portrays globalization as another form of colonization, and war as both its vehicle and its consequence. Each piece depicts a universal story that involves peoples of all cultures and nationalities. This work presents a mirror for viewers to see themselves in portraits that focus on the human spirit at its most vulnerable, in the shadows between obliteration, devastation, and survival.
