Scottish-born and London based artist and poet, Robert Montgomery, brings his solo exhibition, Shiny Colourful Amusements for the Walls of the Bourgeoisie, to JD Malat Gallery Tuesday 1st October - Saturday 2nd November 2019. Coinciding with Frieze London, the highly anticipated exhibition is set to captivate Montgomery's worldwide following. Through Shiny Coloured Amusements for the Walls of the Bourgeoisie, Montgomery, renowned for his large, public light installations and distinctive black and white billboard works, presents a selection of lightworks made especially for the exhibition. The show also combines his illustrious light work technique that is well known to viewers, with new works that celebrate the artist's return to other mediums such as painting and an electrifying exploration of colour. The globally acclaimed artist is set to fuse together these unique, imaginative approaches to his craft and bring to fruition one of his most ambitious solo exhibitions to date.
JD Malat Gallery is proud to cultivate Montgomery's comprehensive exhibition history, having had numerous solo exhibitions across the world, most recently at the Aspen Art Museum in January 2019. Not to mention, Montgomery has presented many important exhibitions in the United Kingdom, such as being shortlisted for the UK Holocaust Memorial, showcased at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Montgomery has also had a strong Biennale presence worldwide, representing Britain at Kochi Biennale in 2012 and the Yinchuan Biennale in 2016.
