Mermaid Arts Centre is delighted to invite you to our exhibition opening on Thursday 13th February from 6pm – 8pm.

Susan Montgomery is a visual artist from Wicklow living in West Cork. She graduated from DLIATD in 1997. She is a member of the Tellurometer Project collective since 2012 and has exhibited widely throughout Ireland in both group and solo exhibitions.

For Montgomery, the use of paint as material endeavours to articulate the existence of fragility and temporality in the context of her personal experience of the everyday. Findings, arrangements and observances from domestic and rural landscapes develop into abstractions that take the form of paintings. There is an attempt to decipher the delicate and often encumbering tension between large and small, rhythm and interruption, interior and exterior, self and other, night and day, stillness and movement and what happens within the slipping between the boundaries of these.

Selected group exhibitions include RuaRed Winter OPEN 2019, ‘Everything is in everything’ Sirius Arts Centre, ‘Time and the Other’ 2019, ‘Site’ 2018, and other selected group exhibitions at Doswell Gallery, Rosscarbery, Skibbereen Arts Festival 2018, Engage Arts Festival, Bandon (2011, 2013), Octagon, Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre 2013, Eigse Carlow (2008, 2009), The Joinery, Dublin 2012. Solo exhibitions include Signal Arts Centre 2008, Talbot Gallery 2009, Greyfriars Municipal Gallery, Waterford 2010. Recent residencies includes The Mothership Project Satellite Residency at Cow House Studios 2018.
