Robert Montgomery is a contemporary installation artist from London. He follows a tradition of conceptual art and stands out by bringing a poetic voice to the discourse of text art. Montgomery creates billboard poems, light pieces, fire poems, woodcuts and watercolors.
By means of poetry he creates messages about social issues like the consumerism and capitalism. In Ostend he painted a billboard on the hotel where the artists for the festival were staying. This text again explores a kind of poetry of ecology/ecological crisis.
