Virginia Lee Montgomery (works in Texas and New York, USA) received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008 & MFA from Yale University in Sculpture in 2016. A hybrid artist, she works primarily with video, performance, sound, & sculpture. Her subject matter ranges from metaphysics to latent autobiography, often incorporating a feminist impulse. While conceptual, VLM’s artwork is hand-built: made with everyday objects & simple tools. Intimate & surreal, repeating gestures such as drilling, dousing, or reaching & recursive symbols like circles, holes, & spheres figure prominently. VLM also works as a professional Mind Map Scribe.
