Margaret Louise

Oil & Acrylic

"This is a painting of the annual dory race in Lunenburg N.S. These traditional fishing boats were used in coastal waters and in the open ocean and were widely built from Long Island South to Nova Scotia. Lunenburg is a UNESCO world heritage site and this event helps preserve the history of dory rowing. The artist is both from Lunenburg and has been a participant in this event. Margaret Louise has a classical education in painting and draws upon her home setting to create an active visual experience on canvas. The painting begins with loose, thin layers of paint which are applied with big gestures that do not consider the image that will the overlaid. Working from a found image and from memory the images slowly gets build up over the already activated canvas. The artist uses the unplanned marks from loose gestural painting to find shapes and patterns that she works into the composition to complete the image."
