Monty Montgomery - Artist Statement
My artistic vision can best be described as an emotional language created using my innate intuition about color and object relationships to connect with the viewer. This authentic viewpoint often humbly defies the norm giving my work both power and vulnerability.
Profoundly affected by my upbringing in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, my work has always been informed by my visceral and emotional reactions to daily experiences whether in exploration of nature or trekking city streets. The epiphany came in my teen years when I began expressing this unique perception of the external world by blending conflicting elements into seamless harmony.
Exposure to divergent settings and combining urban sensory input with my impressions of the natural landscape has inspired a collision into one expression where I attempt, through color theory, mathematics and abstraction to share my journey and create a unique geometric style.
