Deep Silence

Deep Silence

From April to August 1988, Margaret suffered a series of painful losses as her father, son and then mother passed away. Her art became the main outlet for her grief; she sculpted flower forms and globes and beat them with a modified baseball bat. Inspired by waves breaking against the rocks she began grinding and scrubbing the sculptures, softening them and exposing their sand-like inner textures.
