STONE HARBOR – Ocean Galleries welcomes Victoria Montesinos to Stone Harbor for her first exclusive art exhibition in New Jersey. The talented artist, best known for her exquisite paintings of flowers, uses a unique technique of layering to create artwork that is strikingly beautiful.
Born in Mexico City, Victoria studied art with master Spanish painter Jose Bardasano, where she learned the rigorous veladuras technique of painstakingly building up texture and depth through many fine layers of paint. By introducing marble, sand, and stone as textural elements, as well as stenciling techniques, Montesinos creates a subtle topography for her floral universe. Because this process is so labor intensive and time consuming, Montesinos will spend two to three weeks absorbed in a single canvas.
In addition to her exquisite floral artwork, the collection will include several artistic nude paintings, many of which also incorporate some type of floral element.
Receptions with the artist will be held July 31 and Aug. 1, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., as well as Aug. 2 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The artwork will remain on display through Aug. 30. Ocean Galleries is located at 9618 Third Ave., Stone Harbor, NJ 08247. The show is free and open to the public with all artwork available for acquisition.
