David Montgomery


Each of my shadowboxes is a theatrical scene; the story is never about the birds, but they are your guides into my imaginary world. The Aviaries are one-of-a-kind or limited edition dioramas built combining woodworking and painting techniques from around the world with special-effects model-making, using any material necessary to achieve my desired scenes. The birds I cast in resin, in molds of my original carvings, then I individually refine and paint them. I carefully consider color, pose and placement of birds as the final step in composition.
