Paintings and Drawings: selected works from the studio

Margaret Woodward
1 September 2012 - 26 September 2012

Paintings and Drawings – selected works from the studio is an important survey of Margaret Woodward's full oeuvre and range of media in painting, pastel and drawing. Featuring treasures from Woodward’s studio, it celebrates the artist's integrated approach to picture-making – where distinct values of colour, line and space become one, unified form of expression.

As she explains, “a good painting is totally balanced so that everything responds to everything else. Within the immediacy of a relationship you can get a sensation of something else occurring. Within the total thing, however, it has to be a unity.”

In Woodward’s words, as in her artistic universe, “Each work provides discovery which demands more still, multitudes of possibilities which lead one on, including the connections which might arise from one’s subconscious …. The revealing, the discovery of patterns of order, of connection, is at the heart of the work, really.” (quoted in Gavin Fry, Margaret Woodward: Paintings 1993 -2007, Beagle Press, 2008)
