Have you watched a southerly front suck blue from the sea? Or considered the exact colours informing any simple sky? Have you traced paths of water on the beach making their way home? Those unique, calligraphic rills are the kinds of conditions that inspire Margaret Hansen to capture intuitive images inhabiting the world between impression and concept, playing at the edges of light and land. This work is described as atmospheric, exploring shifting light and tide, licks of wind on water.
Margaret paints from her studio at Makorori Beach - the edge of a reef at the end of a beach at the beginning of the day. She plays with ambiguous and multiple horizons and perceptions. She exploits colour with a subtle or restricted palette. Depth is often achieved with fine layering or unseen background metallics.
Featured works range in size. One series of tiny paintings ‘Ways to Water, catches those trickling paths to the sea. Another, entitled ‘Bobby’s Birthday’ captures a rare burst of light seen only once. Many of these paintings carry stories.
“With this exhibition I want to say, ‘See that? Look now! It’s gone.’”
