ABOUT MARGARET

 

Born in Austin Texas in 1965, Margaret attended Texas A&M University, where she received a BA in Literature. In 2004 she attended CU Boulder’s MFA program but did not matriculate, instead opting to move to New York in 2006. In 2011, she started working primarily on paper, with watercolor, ink, and enamel on an overlapping series that explores play, identity, belonging, and the American anti-story. Her art has been exhibited extensively in the U.S., and internationally in Europe, China, and Moscow. She has won numerous awards, including a fellowship for Vermont Studio Residency in 2012 and the Millay Colony in 2013.

 

 

Artist’s Statement

 

Painting is a process of imaginative play that transports me in to a richly imaginative poetic space, in which I become entirely present in the moment. Artist Margaret Withers in her Brooklyn StudioWhat excites me as an artist is the possibility that viewing art can be a form of play, and a conduit for creative impulse by sparking a kind of present-moment wonder and playfulness. Through rigorous practice and application, I’ve developed a visual vocabulary that I employ within an abstract context, as a way of working through my artistic ideas and arriving at understanding of how to create my mythical worlds.  This process serves my overall evolving artistic vision, which, as is apparent in my work, evokes a sense of play.
