Margo is a visual artist who engages in printmaking, collage and installation.
“In my work I have established an iconic language inspired by the rural Hawaiian landscape, where the ‘wild west’ of American myth is here pushed to the edge of westward expansion. Utilizing collage, print media, installation and animation, this iconography populates surreal geographies of beauty, color and line in an ongoing personal narrative of an intruder in a secret garden. Using the allegory of landscape, I explore notions of displacement, vulnerability and authenticity as well as my relationship to natural and super natural worlds; drawing attention to the complicated triangulation of relationships between man, land, and animal and notions of freedom, invasiveness and belonging.”
Creating art invites me to slow down and pay attention to what is right in front of me. I feel wonder and joy seeing so many shades of blue in the sky, the ecstatic red lehua flowers wilting to muddy brown on their way to seed, and the darting tongue of a honeybee collecting nectar. My purpose is to share with you atmosphere, colors, textures, and yes, even the sound of life in Hawaii through the art of printmaking.
