Of Things I Can't Unthink





We are delighted to present an exhibition of ceramic works by Susannah Montague. Montague’s art is as humorous as it is subversive. Her pieces are a daydream in clay, wryly communicating the in-transience of the human condition with a wink and a nudge. Stepping into her studio is like discovering an 18th century Cabinet of Curiosity. Her art is a collection of shamanistic characters which imbibe the peculiar, scientific and mythical qualities involved in creation. Rollicking, cherubic figures wearing masks and antlers frolic among symbols of decay, in a world that is equal parts shadowy and lighthearted. Combined the images evoke a whimsical narrative of folk tales, childhood fantasies, dreams and nightmares.
