My "Paradise" - et cetera
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.
