KYLE MONTGOMERY /// Instagram l kylemontgomery.com

Sydney artist Kyle Montgomery’s infatuation with the afterlife is intriguing to say the least. He finds himself exploring symbolic items from both religious and spiritual realms then comparing their relevance to one another through various sculptural forms. He’s often hunting antique centres and auction sites for second hand ‘Mary’ statues - a common icon in Christian faith, seen to offer guidance and support on the path to life after death. Montgomery also has a strong interest in crystals and the knowledge and power they are said to contain, symbolise relevance to those on a more spiritual front.

The Crystal Mary - is an intentional collision of two beliefs in physical form, combining religion and spirituality to create the ultimate icon. These sculptural works delve into ideas of re-birth and the after- life, principals and messages he portrayed earlier collage works before transforming them into the three dimensional.
