My "Paradise" - et cetera

Marga Persson, SE/AT

In the short presentation, Marga Persson gives insights into her artistic work, which is equally positioned between tapestry and drawing. Repetition, reduction, structure and concentration characterize her works, which are always economical in the choice of well-tried, classical means - Hautelisse, linen, wool ...; Ink, brush, paper ...

Following this, a short introduction to the current exhibition "From Paradise" in the gallery ‘Gwölb’ will be made. From her experience as a long-standing teacher at the University of Art and Design in Linz, she also analyzes some aspects of the significance, development and future of textile art within the university context in Austria.

Marga Persson was born in Sweden. She began studying art history at the University of Lund and, after moving to Vienna, from 1965 studied art at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna. First tapestries (Hautelisse) emerged - a medium that is next to drawing and painting in the center of her artistic work. Since 1991 her studio is in Kefermarkt, Upper Austria.
From 1992 until her retirement in 2011, she was Professor for Textile / Art & Design at the Art University Linz.
In 2014 two monographs were published by Verlag Bibliothek der Provinz:
Marga Persson – along time, works 1987 - 2007
Marga Persson - another continuation ... drawings 2007 - 2011
