Ferdinand Montemayor gained critical notice for his series of paintings on cityscapes in the 1990s. By the end of 2010, the artist shifted his work towards a series of action paintings of competitive games. This painting is a highlight of that series and depicts the movements and progression of a triathlon. With a conservative palette of blacks and white paint, Montemayor nevertheless conveys the intensity and excitement of a horse racing event by an intense brushwork technique that allows paint to splatter and swirl. His figures - rendered in black - recede into the forms of action of each sport, amplified further by the mass of white paint that surrounds each image like a frenzied aura.
