Ready to Hang

I created this piece while in college. I was discovering all kinds of beautiful vintage photographs from the 1960's.

My inspiration in creating this piece is the creepy kitsch of halloween and the awkwardness of childhood. It reminds me of the oddness I felt as a child whenever photos were taken. I always wanted that to get over with faster. I also found it interesting to see how the costumes have changed over the years.

I've always loved spooky and comic art. I enjoy using bright colors.

My name is Wes Montgomery. I am a painter. I started in painting with oils, but have recently been experimenting with acrylics and gouache. My favorite subjects include pop art and surrealism.
