Sean Montgomery is an artist from Edmonton, Alberta, who currently lives and works in Ithaca, New York. He received a BFA from the University of Alberta and a MFA from Concordia University.
”My artistic practice is focused on pattern, repetition, and exploring the space between representational and abstract imagery. The history of abstraction and the examination of different artistic hierarchies provide fertile ground for my practice. I explore topics under this umbrella including nature, landscape and Canadian iconography, textiles and fabric patterns, as well as social class and identity.”
Montgomery has exhibited his paintings at Museum Sinclair-Haus in Germany, Göteborg University, Göteborg, Sweden, several artist run centers in Canada and the USA. His works are in several corporate collections such as TD Bank collection, Toronto, Ontario, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts in Edmonton Alberta, Cenovus Energy in Calgary Alberta and several private collections in Canada , U.S.A. and Europe.
