Art Rotterdam

04 Feb 2015 - 08 Feb 2015

For its first participation in Art Rotterdam Dürst Britt & Mayhew presents the work of American artist Joseph Montgomery (1979). His work has the structure and syntax of sculpture, but it simultaneously has all the trappings of painting: wood, canvas, various types of coating and paint. The blurring and confounding of classification lends it a strange sense of hybridity. Montgomery’s expansion of abstract painting results in two distinctive types of painting: collages and shims. Lately he also added animation and wallpaper to his practice. Montgomery recently had a solo show at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) and his work was shown in the much-discussed exhibition ‘Painter Painter’ at The Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis.
