Kathleen Montgomery

Peonies in Winter Spring in Cranford

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Drawing on work from her current interest in the fugal arrangement of graphic circles, meticulously executed in graphite, the artist places work on two walls. One wall is gesturally, hung and employs a loose counterpoint. The other is more formally and tightly presented. The work takes on a meditative dimension.

About The Artist

Kathleen Montgomery is a visual artist who makes drawings, limited edition prints, three-dimensional objects, and site-specific installations. Whether purely abstract or tending toward the figural, the minimal elemental forms in her work emerge from an exploration of the materials she chooses to use, the physical experiences these materials make available, and the spaces in which this exploration takes place.

Her work has been exhibited at museums, galleries, colleges and universities throughout the United States and Europe, including the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA; John Good Gallery, New York; Trish Higgins Fine Art, Wichita, KS; Galerie Detour, Namur, Belgium; Central Arts, Tuscon, AZ; Chamaliere, France; Stedman Art Gallery, Camden, NJ, and many more.

Her work is in the permanent collection at the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Heinz Endowment.
