Margaret Benn


ARTIST PROFILE
Margaret Benn’s most recent work is a commentary and reflection on the sudden and dramatic changes in her life, which changed her world in a profound way.

Margaret uses many layers of paint to cover but not negate the past. She uses a series of marks to convey past history, and in complete contrast, she brings in abstracted, imperfect painted flowers as metaphor for renewed life, hope and resurgence. Margaret’s paintings observe the polarity between nature and the artificial, also the tension between the decorative and the expressive. Flowers grow and adapt or they don’t survive, as well as seeming to stand, even in the midst of the most challenging of circumstances.

Margaret has achieved a Bachelor of Design and Visual Art, majoring in painting in 2011 and has exhibited in various galleries in Auckland. She currently has paintings held in private collections in Europe. Originally from the UK and born to Jamaican parents, New Zealand has been her home for over 30 years.
