Visiting Artist: Steven Montgomery
Steven Montgomery works primarily in clay, transforming his subjects through trompe l’oeil techniques. His work is concerned with the evolution and demise of industrial manufacturing. While in awe of machines and the technology and brainpower that produce them, he is keenly aware that they are subject to the frailties, flaws and ravages of time comparable to those who create them.
Montgomery received an MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University and a BA in Philosophy from Grand Valley State University. He is a 2012 recipient of a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship that allowed him to work as an artist-in-residence at the National Air And Space Museum in Washington, DC. His work is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Art and Design in New York, the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum in Washington, and numerous other public and private collections throughout the U.S. and abroad. He lives and works in New York City.
