Deliberate discovery defines Lola Montejo’s contemporary works of art. Exploring the lines between contemplative and spontaneous painting; she edits and reworks the use of marks and shapes with in an abstract composition. This is the beginning of an open dialogue with her media and all those possibilities, while at the same time creating constraints that stimulate her discovery.  

Montejo’s shapes and marks take on their own lives as she carefully builds or deconstructs layers. Space is generated by movement and broken incidents on the canvas which suggest motion or change. This process creates neither an infinite depth, nor flatness, but instead a space generated by shifting events on the canvas.

Space and layering of colours in Montejo's paintings create singular worlds. Montejo explains, "My work explores the possibilities of abstracted marks and its means of transformation and reinvention.  My process is a balance between responding to mark making and stumbling upon unpredictable visual references."  
 
Montejo’s works of art are the visual results of layers of radical contradictions. They are created using an organic process of deliberate discovery based on unpredictable structure. A process that is about knowing when to embrace expectations, rules, desire, control, but equally as important as knowing when to let them go.
