kathleen montgomery at the mattress factory

Kathleen Montgomery is an artist in residence at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh. Her sculpture and installations in Body Memory Architecture are sensual and quiet. Many of the wood and found object sculptures suggest heads or torsos. The canvas forms are filled with mud from her own garden. The work is subtle and suggestive without being boring.

Though the materials – wood, mud, string – imply a primitive or tribal influence, I think more about the feminine and the earthly.

You can see works from a few of the other residents on my Instagram or Tumblr pages.
