Lindsay Montgomery’s work is focused on creating personal mythologies that address the topics of death and mysticism, family dynamics, and evolving modes of power. Her recent Neo-Istoriato series re-imagines Italian Maiolica ceramics and medieval manuscript illustrations to create narratives, myths, and cautionary tales. The imagery and forms explore pagan rituals, animal archetypes, modes of power, and encounters with the dead or supernatural, to highlight the persistent tensions with monarchy, colonialism, and feminism that continue to perpetuate destruction and inequality today. Montgomery has a BFA from NSCAD University and MFA from the University of Minnesota. Her work has been exhibited at The Gardiner Museum, The Archie Bray Foundation, and The National Conference on Education in the Ceramic Arts. She is the recipient of the The Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics, The Helen Copeland Memorial Award, and The Joyce Carlyle Memorial Scholarship in the Crafts Endowment.
