James Montgomery (born 1961)
James Montgomery was born in Marin County, California and has been working at Creativity Explored in San Francisco since 1993. Montgomery uses a variety of media with great proficiency, including pastels, acrylics, watercolors, tempera, pencils, inks, chalk, found objects, and mixed media. The iconography of his art centers on watches, numbers, sewer covers, and bridges. His graphically powerful works are often composed of line drawings of repeating watches, covering the picture plane in overlapping layers. Recently Montgomery has utilized his trademark washes of color in portraits, landscapes, and marine scenes.
