Margot Glass
Lady's Thumb, Botanical Drawing, Gold Flower, Leaves on Black Panel

2021

$1,800

About

This delicate botanical drawing is made with gold acrylic on cradled panel, painted black. The exploration of ephemerality, and the fragility of a wild Lady's Thumb, its leaves and buds are the focus of this painting by Margot Glass. The exquisite beauty of the plant is discovered and elevated through close examination and exquisite drawing by the artist. Signed on recto, signed, dated and titled on verso. This series is the result of the artist's wildflower research conducted while hiking along the Pacific coast. Working on a dark ground allows the gleam and luster and delicate reflective silver and gold properties of the metallic medium to present as high tones against the black ground. Glass is interested in the tradition of using nature as idealized ornament in art and design while seeking to observe and represent these plants as accurately as possible in all their irregularity and imperfection. The metallic lines enhance the decorative qualities of the filigree patterns formed by the seed heads and leaf veining. Her compositions are tightly cropped to bring the subject as close to the edge of the picture plane as possible. Margot Glass’s work been exhibited widely in the United States and internationally. Glass’s education includes studies in the Brown/RISD Exchange Program, Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI, she earned a BA with Honors from Brown University. Brown then studied (textile design/pattern) at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, NY. The artist lives and works in Massachusetts.
