Margaret Naylor

555 Hamilton St

A view of an artwork through a dark tube-like structure.

Margaret Naylor's five sculptural pieces will remain on view through July 19,1986. The work combines architectural references and painting with installation sculpture. Specifically, modernist architectural formal elements are combined to communicate the dilemma between the relationship of the natural world and man-made forms. Architecture is interpreted in her installation pieces in the component use of solids and voids or the yin and yang dealt with in modernist painting, architecture and nature.

The examination of contradictions in the historical content in her work speaks of art and architecture in a Modernist era. This topic will be addressed by Trevor Boddy, in a lecture entitled: MOD-PoMo-NeoMod: Stylistic Cycles in Recent Art and Architecture Tuesday, July 8, 1986 at 8.00 pm at the Contemporary Art Gallery.
