A selected timeline of monotypes, etchings, and screenprints representing the breadth of EJ Montgomery’s artistic career from past to present. Drawing on her practice of metalsmithing, textile design, photography, and painting, EJ Montgomery’s highly sensitive prints evoke themes of memory, through use of evocative automatic writing, calligraphic marks, and strokes of swirling lines. Color overlays, playful shapes, and textured etched surfaces in her painterly compositions are inspired by her love of world travel, music, and naturalistic formations in nature.
