Newzones Gallery of Contemporary Art
March 17 - April 27, 2019
Newzones is pleased to present “Lucid Dreams”, a solo exhibition by leading Canadian female sculptor, Susannah Montague.
Susannah Montague’s ceramic figurative sculptures are finely detailed, hugely intricate, and loaded with religious and mythological imagery. Montague draws her inspiration from mysticism and esotericism, touching on daydreams and the fantastical elements that haunt our nights. Within the eerie beauty of these ceramic sculptures is an exploration of the intersection between dreams and reality, while at the same time, fusing innocence and corruption in the flowers, dolls, lizards, toys and skulls that fervidly explode in these contemporary baroque compositions, asking us to revel in the beauty of the absurd.
Montague is based on Bowen Island, BC. She received her BFA from Emily Carr University and OCAD University.
Montague’s sculptures can be found in private collections all over the world. Her work was the subject of a CBC Arts Documentary in August 2018.
