I’ve been writing and thinking about Margie Livingston’s recent sculptures this week.
And then somewhere along the line, I started flipping through her old paintings. I realized with a jolt that I already knew her work! In fact, she and I had met in the back of a shuttle van some three years ago at Miami Art Basal, where because we were ridiculously crunched together (I was pregnant with Christian at the time), we struck up conversation and exchanged contact information. At that time she gave me a small book of images of her work.
Such an odd coincidence. Now we are pleasantly emailing back and forth and I’m getting paid to write about her upcoming show at Luis de Jesus Gallery.
Here’s an interesting vid from her website www.margie.net.
