24 millions Robert Montgomery

octobre 2, 2019

Robert Montgomery’s THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE has been shared among 24 million people worldwide. I mean, the image of that piece, whether on Internet, on posters, on T shirts, tattooed on one’s body, as a light piece, small or huge, in institutions or private collections, and on the invite of the latest solo exhibition of Montgomery @ French gallerist Jean-David Malat in London. This illustrates the very unusual ability of Montgomery’s art to talk to the people — all the people. From the so-called biggest collectors to very intimate poets and everybody around. « To encounter the work of Robert Montgomery is to make a tender encounter whose tenderness is enhanced by the public, communal quality of his work » (Dane Weatherman). This tenderness is also to be encountered in the gallery’s garden in Geneva… just give me a call and come by any time. And soon also in Perama.

May be this unusual ability to talk to everybody’s heart and senses stems from poetry. I would tend to believe so… In the video below Robert Montgomery explains why and how poetry is of outmost importance today, my be more than ever. Poetry helps us ling our inner world and dreams, terrors, desires… to the world around us. Poetry is sharing our inner world with the world. This is the magics of Robert Montgomery’s art.
