3 years ago I had an opportunity to exhibit my work bricklanegallery in London.
While I was in London, showing at the Tate was Agnes Martin. I feel a whole resonance with her work. Being so close to her, through her work, was one of the most profound and curious feelings which still lingers within me and inspires today.
Allow art to stir emotion within you. Forget the explanation. Forget the theory. Forget the criticism. Forget history.
The 'thief' in the title of William Morris' 'Strawberry thief' design, refers to the thrushes that consumed strawberries in his garden. He was so pleased with this design, he registered it with the Patents Office. Morris was born otd 1834. His beautiful designs are in 'Love & Desire Pre-Raphaelite Masterpieces from the Tate' until 28 April. Link in bio.

Starting to write up some funding bids to push through this very special long-form project Rory & myself have been working on , sitting on , leaving it back , bringing it back.
Now feels like for both of us we are in the right place to make this really happen. The plan is for an exhibition / installation / soundspace / honeycombs & way more interesting things that I will not mention yet 😋 It’s going to get there now, I know it. Tunnel vision. We both have lost the password to the.maeckelberghe.archive which we need to update and re-wire. But I’m excited for the family and for everyone to see what we are building. This slide was actually down at the Minnack Theatre.
1950’s-ish I think. So soon I’ll re-wire the Instagram and also make a website for it to sit and hopefully start blowing some of your minds. Yeah Boy ! margomaeckelberghetatecornwallheritagezennorarchivelongformfilmsoundscapesslideprojectorbookbindingartistdocumentaryartinstillation
It's not work when it's this much fun! I've been lucky enough to travel the world with my career, meet incredible people and do something I am passionate about.
But it's the people that make it.
