Most Recent Interviews

MARGOT_BERGMAN05

Previously collaborating with anonymous makers of discarded art, Margot has recently begun to work alone with her gestures, allowing traces of what she learned while painting with others to continue to influence her own vocabulary.

Through these experiments and projects Lindsey aims to understand plants’ quiet role outside of the perceived center, appreciating each for their often passive existence rather than forcing an aggressive examination of their delicate form.
