Spaces and environments, both personal and communal, have a strong influence on our moods. As a visual artist I work around spaces in which we live, work and wait. My projects often start from a certain desire and/or void.
At This Art Fair I will be mostly showing sculptures from my recent project The Waiting Room. The idea to work around the concept of a waiting room arose from my struggle with time and the desire to slow it down. I will also show elements of the texture study that I’ve set up as part of the project. Here I’ve experimented with creating my own structures and combining them with different materials. At the same time this experiment was a diversion, to dream away with a focus on textures, to forget the sense of time for a while.www.margresteensma.com
