MARGARET’S LABEL:

2009 Green Acres Hill Chardonnay

The process of painting, for me, begins with attention to the shifting internal boundaries between order and chaos, intention and chance, knowing and not knowing. I explore this generative space with a visual vocabulary of interconnection — nerves, pathways, waves, sinews, currents. In this newest body of work I use organic form and color in counterpoint to uncover symmetries, reflections, shadows and depth. My aim is to bridge the dichotomies of growth and fragility through multi-layered patterns, and to evoke the unseen but powerful sensations of the body within.

I begin my pieces with collage, applying areas of color, images, and random marks. I use a partial image of the yogic nadis — the subtle channels of the body which flow within and without — as a building block for many of my compositions. I seal the first layer with beeswax, encasing and sometimes veiling what is underneath; the surface paint brings color and form into focus. The loose geometrical shapes give structure and the organic forms relinquish that control; my task is to discover new ways to find equilibrium between them. This way of working has become a permeable container for my ideas, an opening into play and unexpected wanderings.
