This work was created from found imagery that resembled my maritime upbringing. It has a dream like quality with its collage effect and exaggeration of colour. This assemblage was inspired by the piles of found photographs the artist slowly acquired and how the mounting collection functioned together in different dialogs. The work purposes that the image has no end and exists far off the canvas and plays with the idea of false reflections. The shore is of an unknown Maritime coastal village was reinterpreted from a black and white reference image.

This painting is based off an old found image of Pushthrough, a town on Newfoundland's south coast which has been an inspiration for many paintings by the artist. The grid is used as a tool to transfer the image onto the canvas and is emphasized for visual interest which is becoming a signature style in Margaret Louise's work.
This painting is made from a reference photo of a flood in the rural Maritimes. The painting's marks are very deliberate and planned resulting in a crisp image. Within the grid shown, one section was painted at a time at random and separate colours were mixed for the same purpose but by using the right tone it functions correctly and results in greater visual interest.

The painting “Man in a Boat” is a large work that was made over a 5 month period. It is an image of a man rowing a dory with his dog in front of a red building; a tradition maritime scene. The marks in the painting are fractured and the quality of the paint is displayed by the splashes, drips and dry brush strokes.
