The TAP Lobby Art Gallery welcomes guest artist Margaret Lockwood for the run of A Walk in the Woods, March 31 – April 17.
Many times awarded and featured, Lockwood’s ethereal, abstract paintings interpret the beauty and landscapes of our own woods in Door County.
Lockwood commented on her work: “I constantly desire to paint canvases that create the feeling of space. My tools are color relationships, layers of atmosphere and rhythmic interludes. I want each work to gently welcome viewers into a peaceful place within the painting and within themselves. The work sometimes begins with looking at the surrounding landscape or often begins as a conversation with the painting before it. No matter how they are started, the real work comes in the doing, while I am in the middle of it all, with the canvas covered and the spiritual nature of the work taking form. I am required to have trust in the unknown and yet-to-be, remaining open to change and chance along the way, but also to direct the creation.
“In Door County, I lived in the woods and then in a farmhouse with open fields all around. The work is overwhelmingly a response to my appreciation of the fragile beauty of those remembered trees and the peacefulness of fleeting light and color across the fields and in the clouds above.”
