Lindsay Montgomery

Exploring ceramics, painting and puppetry, Lindsay Montgomery’s work focuses on creating personal mythologies that address a wide range of topics and issues including death and mysticism, evolving modes of power and family dynamics. Her recent creations reimagine Italian Maiolica ceramics and medieval manuscript illustrations to create narratives, myths, and cautionary tales that highlight the persistent tensions with monarchy, colonialism, and feminism. The Istoriato or “story painted” vessel from Renaissance Italy provides the artist an opportunity to reclaim a device that propagated patriarchal classical social norms to reveal, through images and narrative forms, the inequalities and disparities of our societies.
