Melsa Montagne is a visual artist. Her work is noteworthy for her mastery of figurative painting, in which she explores the meandering complexity of humanity, often with a troubling effect. Her paintings are instinctive and serve as an outlet for her questions about the particular singularities of each entity, her pieces immerse us in a world of portraits that are often androgynous—imaginary people haunted by a search for their true identity. The work created by this artist brings us to a universe of her own. She has developed a unique pictorial language, painting that touches the soul.
Melsa Montagne creates works in mixed technique: acrylic, pastel, lead, ink and collages of different materials. Sweeping brushstrokes applied in the manner of Chinese calligraphy highlight the delicacy with which she treats her subjects.
