Montina Guiry

Artist member since 2020
Toronto, Ontario

Montina graduated with a BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCAD University. She currently resides in Toronto painting nostalgic imagery fuzed with contemporary expressionism. Her paintings are born from ancestral healing, meditations, dreams, and repressed memories. Montina wrestles with the esoteric layers that make up the self and her painting is the vehicle for capturing these energies and directing them into a healing experience.

In Montina’s art, each painting evolves as a wrestling match between loose, gestural paint and the restraint needed to pull it together into an emotionally charged subject. The varied themes blend and melt into each other within in a highly saturated colour palette.
