Here is the video to accompany the exhibition. margaret Christiansons exhibition

Born in Brisbane, Margaret’s childhood was a montage of her Swedish heritage and the particular Australian urban culture of the 60’s.

This still influences the works that she produces in metal, paint on canvas, works on paper and textiles.

Melbourne has been her hometown for many years. Completing a Bachelor of Education-Arts at Melbourne State College Margaret launched into a career teaching in the Arts, working with young people new to this country. Through art practices and language, Margaret helped enhanced their artistic imagination whilst developing their language skills.

Margaret has always produced lyrical and evocative line drawings and paintings. With a contemporary sensibility, playfulness and a desire to express serenity, the surfaces of her work are often layered with acrylic paint, fine art papers & found objects.These visions are now being translated into delightful whimsical metal Plasma cut sculptures.

Her works are informed by her environment, both urban views and the majestic Australian landscapes she has explored on her travels with her husband Ivan.

She has undertaken commissions, created murals for public spaces and curated exhibitions.
