An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Sean Montgomery.
Sean Montgomery is a Canadian artist based in Ithaca, New York.
2010 – Master of Fine Arts, Concordia University, Montreal
2005 – Bachelor of Fine Arts, University of Alberta, Edmonton
Sean Montgomery is an artist from Edmonton, Alberta, who currently lives and works in Ithaca, New York. He holds a BFA from the University of Alberta and a MFA from Concordia University. He makes paintings, drawings, and painting based objects that explore notions of masculinity, specifically its representation through Canadian iconography, as well as concerns surrounding issues of social class. The work also examines artistic hierarchies, the status of the artist, and notions of modernist purity, specifically as these concerns relate to painting itself, the extended practices of painting and the history of abstraction. He is represented by Laroche/Joncas in Montreal, Quebec. Selected works are also available at Tompkins Projects in Brooklyn, New York.
