Margo Margolis Art

American, b. 1947

Margo Margolis is an American abstract artist and painter, born in 1947. She lives and works in New York and recently retired as Chairman of the Tyler School of Art’s Department of Painting and Sculpture, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her continuing commitment to abstraction is as fresh and invigorating as it was in the early 1970s, when she began exhibiting with the Brooke Alexander Gallery, in New York, where she had several shows. Margolis’s works have also been exhibited throughout the United States of America, at numerous galleries and institutions, including The Pennsylvania Academy of Art, The Renaissance Academy of Art, The Munson-Williams Proctor Institute and Halls Walls, among others.

Red Ears
By Margo Margolis
Located in Wellesley, MA
"Red Ears," Flashe on Canvas, 72 x 60 Inches, is a large abstraction in gray, red, white and black, part of a highly sophisticated series of paintings, drawings and monoprints in their approach to mark making and the development of a new visual language, playful and reminiscent of Alexander Calder's aesthetic in the sense that the "drawing" is appropriated from comic books to construct a dense, multi-layered space. Margo Margolis: "While text and image combine to tell the story, it is the drawing around the narrative, the space between text and image that I find compelling. In my work, it is the space between, on the periphery, in the margins that has become the foreground. It is the charged environment that has become the subject. Equally significant and transformative have been innovations in process that have evolved. Discrete marks are de-contextualized, reassembled and photocopied. They are further manipulated by exaggerations in scale, repetition and excessive layering. I have introduced 'printerly' processes (carbon tracking and stencils) that combine with marks that are hand-drawn, hand-painted. These are layered over and under transparent veils of paint. The incorporation of printing methods has been critical both formally and conceptually. These processes underline the fact that this is a system based on a 'ready-made' language. They create an identity distinctly different from action painting, gestural painting or any notion that the artists' stroke is assumed to reveal his/her psyche. These are distanced marks and frozen gestures. In combination with what is handmade, they reveal an alternate translation. Importantly, these processes, in allowing direct reproduction point to the semantic mutability of the language. However, most important is the process of building, excessive layering, and the continual dissolution and re-materialization of form. The paintings have a physicality and material presence that affirms the medium and is in contrast to their graphic impact." MARGO MARGOLIS EDUCATION B.S.

"Studio" Playful Matisse-like Abstraction Blue, Pink, Red, Yellow, Black, White
By Margo Margolis
Located in Wellesley, MA
This abstraction by NY based artist Margo Margolis has a very sophisticated/playful sensibility with brilliant, intense color (yellow, red, orange, pink, blue, turquoise, black and white) which is the significant attribute of the artist's flashe medium, a water based French paint. Consisting of multiple layers of underpainting and glazing, and contrasts between hard and soft edges, these paintings not only have associations with Henri Matisse's palette and Alexander Calder's sculptural forms, but also share in these artists' complexities after relatively straightforward initial first takes. Fresh and intelligent exploration into the possibilities for abstraction are Margolis's focus, and her paintings achieve that rare quality of making abstraction feel new. Margo Margolis "Studio" 2022 Flashe on Canvas 24 x 20 x 1.25 Inches This painting is unframed and framing is not necessary as the sides are painted white. It is currently on view in an exhibition of the artist's work in Wellesley, MA where it is featured in a group of works of varying sizes, small, medium, and large: 24 x 20 inches, 40 x 32 inches, 72 x 60 inches, and works on paper measuring 30 x 22 inches.

"Mapping the Day" Playful/Sophisticated Abstract Calder/Matisse-Like Pink/ Green
By Margo Margolis
Located in Wellesley, MA
This abstraction by NY based artist Margo Margolis has a very sophisticated/playful sensibility with brilliant, intense color (pink, bright green, dark green, red, yellow, turquoise, pale gray, black and white) - the significant attribute of the artist's flashe medium, a water based French paint. Consisting of multiple layers of underpainting and glazing, and the frequent contrasts between hard and soft edges, these paintings not only have occasional associations with Henri Matisse's palette and Alexander Calder's sculptural forms, but also share in these artists' complexities after initial relatively straightforward first takes. Fresh and intelligent exploration into the possibilities for abstraction are Margolis's focus, and these works achieve that rare quality of making abstraction feel new. Margo Margolis "Mapping the Day" 2022 Flashe on Canvas 40 x 32 x 1.25 Inches This painting is unframed and framing is not necessary as the sides are painted white. To achieve accuracy for color some of the detail photographs shown below cause the background to appear slightly too gray. It is currently on view in an exhibition of the artist's work in Wellesley, MA where it is featured in a group of works of varying sizes, small, medium, and large: 24 x 20 inches, 40 x 32 inches, 72 x 60 inches, and works on paper measuring 30 x 22 inches.

In reviewing the artist’s 1993 exhibition in the Beth Urdang gallery for 'The Boston Globe' then chief art critic Nancy Stapen stated: “…eccentric, quasi-geometric forms and initial impression of simplicity belie this artist’s highly sophisticated grasp of paintings. These are multi- layered works concerned with the discipline’s core issues – transluscency and opacity, flatness and illusioinism, line and form, figure and ground, pattern and surface, structure and weightless pictorial space… these paintings may be analyzed up to a point. In the end, their process remains mysterious. Their appeal lies in their engagement with an inventive form language intrinsic to painting, as well as in their deft synthesis of quietude and quirkiness.” June 3, 1993 Current Chief Art Critic for 'The Boston Globe, ' Cate McQuaid, wrote of Margolis’ 2017 exhibition in the gallery: “Her marks grab at you as insistently as a toddler demanding attention. They’re like a language made purely of punctuation, rhythmic and emphatic, let out of the duty of modifying sentences, freed at last to express itself alone.” January 6, 2017 Works are included in numerous public collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank, Amerata-Hess Corporation, General Mills, Best Products, IBM, Estee Lauder, Miami-Dade College, Chemical Bank, and Wellington Management. She is the recipient of many awards including 2 grants from The National Endowment for the Arts, a New York State Council on the Arts Grant, and Yaddo and MacDowell Residency Grants.

"White and Green" Playful/Sophisticated Abstract Matisse Calder Qualities Orange
By Margo Margolis
Located in Wellesley, MA
This abstraction by NY based artist Margo Margolis has a very sophisticated/playful sensibility with brilliant, intense color (dark green, bright green, orange, yellow, black and white) - the significant attribute of the artist's flashe medium, a water based French paint. Consisting of multiple layers of underpainting and glazing, and frequent contrasts between hard and soft edges, these paintings not only have associations with Henri Matisse's palette and Alexander Calder's sculptural forms, but also share in these artists' levels of complexity after initial relatively straightforward first takes. Fresh and intelligent exploration into the possibilities for abstraction are Margolis's focus, and these works achieve that rare quality of making abstraction feel new. Margo Margolis "White and Green" 2022 Flashe on Canvas 24 x 18 x 1.25 Inches This painting is unframed and framing is not necessary as the sides are painted white. It is currently on view in an exhibition of the artist's work in Wellesley, MA where it is featured in a group of works of varying sizes, small, medium, and large: 24 x 20 inches, 40 x 32 inches, 72 x 60 inches, and works on paper measuring 30 x 22 inches. Also available are a series of earlier small canvases measuring 14 x 11 inches each which also work well as groupings. Margolis’s continuing commitment to abstract painting dates back to the early 1970s when she began exhibiting with the Brooke Alexander Gallery in New York where she had several shows. In addition her work has been exhibited throughout the country at numerous galleries and institutions including The Pennsylvania Academy of Art, The Renaissance Society, The Munson-Williams Proctor Institute and Halls Walls, among others. In reviewing the artist’s 1993 exhibition in the Beth Urdang gallery for 'The Boston Globe' then chief art critic Nancy Stapen stated: “…eccentric, quasi-geometric forms and initial impression of simplicity belie this artist’s highly sophisticated grasp of paintings. These are multi- layered works concerned with the discipline’s core issues – transluscency and opacity, flatness and illusioinism, line and form, figure and ground, pattern and surface, structure and weightless pictorial space… these paintings may be analyzed up to a point. In the end, their process remains mysterious. Their appeal lies in their engagement with an inventive form language intrinsic to painting, as well as in their deft synthesis of quietude and quirkiness.” June 3, 1993 Current Chief Art Critic for 'The Boston Globe, ' Cate McQuaid, wrote of Margolis’ 2017 exhibition in the gallery: “Her marks grab at you as insistently as a toddler demanding attention. They’re like a language made purely of punctuation, rhythmic and emphatic, let out of the duty of modifying sentences, freed at last to express itself alone.” January 6, 2017 Works are included in numerous public collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank, Amerata-Hess Corporation, General Mills, Best Products, IBM, Estee Lauder, Miami-Dade College, Chemical Bank, and Wellington Management. She is the recipient of many awards including 2 grants from The National Endowment for the Arts, a New York State Council on the Arts Grant, and Yaddo and MacDowell Residency Grants. Margolis received a BS degree from Skidmore College and an MFA from Indiana University. She lives and works in New York. The artist recently retired as Chairman of the Tyler School of Art's (Philadelphia) Department of Painting. Statement by Margo Margolis: "While text and image combine to tell the story, it is the drawing around the narrative, the space between text and image that I find compelling. In my work, it is the space between, on the periphery, in the margins that has become the foreground. It is the charged environment that has become the subject.

"Untitled" Medium Sized Abstraction on Paper, Cream, Red, Black, Monoprint
By Margo Margolis
Located in Wellesley, MA
"Untitled" Medium Sized Abstraction on Paper in Cream, Gray, Black and Red. Monoprint, 30 x 22 Inches, Framed in White Wood. This monoprint has a very sophisticated sensibility in that it is purely abstract and consists of a suggestion of a gray grid on a cream ground with a powerful black and red free-wheeling biomorphic linear shape. The mark making was inspired by the artist's stay in Rome - where her then 10 year old son became addicted to Italian comic books -which adds another whimsical Pop dimension. Associations can also be made with Alexander Calder's paintings, sculptures and works on paper, and Asian art. Also available by the artist are canvases (72 x 60 inches, 40 x 32 inches, 14 x 11 inches) and a series of related paintings on paper measuring 30 x 22 inches. Margo Margolis lives and works in New York. She recently retired as Chairman of the Tyler School of Art's (Philadelphia) Department of Painting. Margolis’ continuing commitment to abstraction is as fresh and invigorating as it was in the early 1970s when she began exhibiting with the Brooke Alexander Gallery in New York where she had several shows. In addition her work has been exhibited throughout the country at numerous galleries and institutions including The Pennsylvania Academy of Art, The Renaissance Society, The Munson-Williams Proctor Institute and Halls Walls, among others. In reviewing the artist’s 1993 exhibition in the Beth Urdang gallery for the 'Boston Globe,' Nancy Stapen stated: “…eccentric, quasi-geometric forms and initial impression of simplicity belie this artist’s highly sophisticated grasp of paintings. These are multi- layered works concerned with the discipline’s core issues – transluscency and opacity, flatness and illusioinism, line and form, figure and ground, pattern and surface, structure and weightless pictorial space… these paintings may be analyzed up to a point. In the end, their process remains mysterious. Their appeal lies in their engagement with an inventive form language intrinsic to painting, as well as in their deft synthesis of quietude and quirkiness.” June 3, 1993 Current Chief Art Critic for the 'Boston Globe, ' Cate, McQuaid, wrote of Margolis’ 2017 exhibition in the gallery: “Her marks grab at you as insistently as a toddler demanding attention. They’re like a language made purely of punctuation, rhythmic and emphatic, let out of the duty of modifying sentences, freed at last to express itself alone.” January 6, 2017 Margo Margolis’ works are included in numerous public collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank, Amerata-Hess Corporation, General Mills, Best Products, IBM, Estee Lauder, Miami-Dade College, Chemical Bank, and Wellington Management. She is the recipient of many awards including 2 grants from The National Endowment for the Arts, a New York State Council on the Arts Grant, and Yaddo and MacDowell Residency Grants. Margolis received a BS degree from Skidmore College and an MFA from Indiana University. She lives and works in New York. Statement by Margo Margolis: "While text and image combine to tell the story, it is the drawing around the narrative, the space between text and image that I find compelling. In my work, it is the space between, on the periphery, in the margins that has become the foreground. It is the charged environment that has become the subject. Equally significant and transformative have been innovations in process that have evolved. Discrete marks are de-contextualized, reassembled and photocopied. They are further manipulated by exaggerations in scale, repetition and excessive layering. I have introduced 'printerly' processes (carbon tracking and stencils) that combine with marks that are hand-drawn, hand-painted. These are layered over and under transparent veils of paint. The incorporation of printing methods has been critical both formally and conceptually. These processes underline the fact that this is a system based on a 'ready-made' language. They create an identity distinctly different from action painting, gestural painting or any notion that the artists' stroke is assumed to reveal his/her psyche. These are distanced marks and frozen gestures. In combination with what is handmade, they reveal an alternate translation. Importantly, these processes, in allowing direct reproduction point to the semantic mutability of the language. However, most important is the process of building, excessive layering, and the continual dissolution and re-materialization of form.
