Margaret Garrett | The Still Point

November 30, 2023 ‒ January 13, 2024

New Paintings and Works on Paper by Margaret Garrett

…at the still point, there the dance is.
- T. S. Eliot

These new works, all created in 2023, continue Garrett’s exploration of translating movement and music into two-dimensional abstract compositions. “When I begin working on a new piece, I see the paper or canvas as an empty stage and the line as movement: texture, form, the way that colors interact are all different manifestations of motion and energy,” says Garrett. The Still Point is Garrett’s second solo exhibition at Planthouse.

Margaret Garrett is an interdisciplinary American artist. Her artistic practice includes painting, printmaking, collage, dance and video work. Born in North Carolina and raised in Pennsylvania, she grew up training to be a dancer and went on to dance with the Pennsylvania and Cleveland Ballet companies. In her early twenties, she discovered painting, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color and switched her focus to visual art.
