Maison Kitsuné has announced an exhibition of new works by Julian Montague titled Form and Fray at their gallery location on Perry Street. Made out of fabric from worn-out clothing, old sheets, tablecloths, and scraps of fabric leftover from other projects, Montague’s works speak of a previous existence marked and mottled by the mundane activities of everyday life.
Those familiar with Montague’s recent paintings will recognize some familiar motifs and shapes in this work including tower-like structures, angled lines and curved shapes. However, the physical qualities of the fabric materials shift the tone of the geometrically structured compositions: the hard edges appear fuzzier, the surfaces varying from corduroy to cable knit.
