Vinciguerras abstract canvases resonate with deep colour. Although
some appear almost monochromatic at first glance, there are discrete
overall patterns that permeate the surface of the works creating layers
of depth. She uses geometric patterning, sometimes combined with line,
usually in very subtle colour variations. Margarets colour focus
for this exhibition has been on fiery warm hues, perfect for winter
many of these paintings shimmer with light and colour. Layers of transparent
paint, often in different tones of the same hue, create lush rhythmic
depths. Yet careful details, such as a veil of dots in a contrasting
colour, or floating soft edged geometric shapes in semi-transparent
white, pull the viewers eyes back to the picture planes surface.
This is a smorgasbord for the eyes, delicious deep greens, rich burgundies,
charcoal greys and rose pinks. These are artworks that celebrate paint
and the process of painting.
