Current Artist - Marguerite Macintosh

Marguerite MacIntosh is an artist and retired architect in addition to being a wife, mother, and grandmother. Her works in acrylic, pencil and mixed media contemplate her own experience of time and place and point to an awareness of the present moment and the liminal spaces in which we find ourselves. She lives with her husband and their dog Beau in Summerland BC. 

The works below are from her series FROM AWAY which considers her move to the Okanagan Valley four years ago after living in the lower mainland of BC for most of her life. While renovating and then inhabiting their century-old home and garden in this new environment, she reflected on the experience of being a stranger in an unfamiliar land. Plants and trees found in her new location appear in these works in varrying seasons of maturity and renewal. Although the species depicted are non-native and sometimes invasive, they have been able to adapt and flourish. 

Free-flowing organic elements are layered between crisp dotted grids in these paintings. The geometric elements are informed by her background in architecture and act to disrupt the gestural mark-making and loose painterly brushstrokes or the representational botanicals. The dotted grids represent, for the artist, the intangible and transcendent experiences that occur in the midst of the unsettled reality of an overchanging world.
