His work is engaged with the history of abstraction and the examination of different artistic hierarchies. Montgomery explores topics under this umbrella including nature, landscape and Canadian iconography, textiles and fabric patterns, as well as social class and identity.
Montgomery’s work has been exhibited at a range of venues including universities, commercial galleries, artist run centers and museums in Canada, Europe, and the USA.
