Trudy Montgomery

Trudy Montgomery is heavily influenced by California, where she lived for 14 years.
The artist views her work as inner landscapes or ‘dreamscapes’
Trudy's work has been exhibited internationally including in the UK, Germany, India and California and is represented by galleries in London and Los Angeles.

Trudy Montgomery is an abstract painter who, working from a meditative state, uses paint to express what words cannot. Her vibrant paintings, full of vitality and bold gestures, are born from experimentation and the desire to convey the inexpressible. Connecting with her palette on a spiritual level, her energetic and uplifting works portray the energy of place and Self.

Trudy Montgomery’s Artistic Practice and Influences

Trudy, a next-generation British expressionist, follows in the footsteps of artists such as Patrick Heron and Peter Lanyon. After 14-years of living in California, the Cornwall-based artist draws inspiration from the Californian and Cornish coast. Fusing elements drawn from the artist’s spiritual landscape, the resulting works are bold in colour and immersive in scale. Building up and scraping away layers of paint, her process is one of discovery. Aspiring to find her painting rather than produce a premeditated scene, Trudy abandons any initial planning early on to allow her composition to evolve. Every colour, brushstroke, and effect shifts the image towards pure abstraction. Intuitive, unexpected mark-making and colour explosions ignite her works.

Exhibitions and Collections

Trudy has exhibited in London, Dubai and Los Angeles. You can also find her works in private and corporate collections worldwide, including Hard Rock, Laing O’Rourke and Nordstroms.
