Biography

Named by way of a seemingly arbitrary numbering scheme, Joseph Montgomery’s works are small assemblages of fragments of wood, clay, concrete, cardboard, and other found objects. He heavily layers his compositions with oil paints, wax, and fiberglass, making them at once pictorial objects and sculptural objects in the tradition of relief sculpture. Worked and reworked, Montgomery’s works defy easy categorization—the objects he incorporates are as much the canvas for his painting as they are meant to be appreciated for their aesthetic and material qualities.
