ABOUT

New York-based, Louisiana-born painter Margaret Evangeline has long experimented with aesthetically resistant material, making work that deepens the immediacy of a moment. Evangeline is perhaps best known for her use of gunshot and mirror polished stainless steel to open up the all-over 2D picture plane with its taproot in New American-Type Painting.

In recent videos, she experiments with sound and actions collected while shooting the steel panels of a commissioned sculpture. Once Upon a Time, America, a three-minute video, was produced in conjunction with the site-specific installation now in the permanent collection of The Fields at ArtOmi, near Ghent, New York.

She is frequently written about in The New York Times, Art in America, ARTnews, The Chicago Tribune, Architectural Digest, among other publications.

Evangeline is the recipient of awards, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, 2001, and a New York Foundation for the Arts Grant, 1996. Solo exhibitions of the artist’s work have been held at venues as various as The Palm Beach ICA, The Delaware Center for the Arts, The Hafnarborg Art Museum outside Reykjavik, Iceland, and the Taipei Museum in Taiwan. She is a member of the NY Advisory Board for Louisiana Arts.

In February 2007 at Stux Gallery in New York City, Evangeline installed shot works and photographs for her solo exhibition "Ricochet". At the opening of this exhibition, Evangeline performed a work called "Prodigal Daughter", in which she choreographed her own live gunshots with the percussive rhythms of a professional tap dancer. An iconoclastic language developed around the socio-political work that was at once poetic and provocative, inspired by the ideas of John Cage and current events.

For October 2008 Evangeline created a site-specific installation for the River Thames in London on a barge across from the Tate Modern, commissioned by Illuminate Productions.

Currently there is a mini-retrospective of her artworks at The Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. She is also working on a mid-career monograph, with the working title, Uneasy Waters. She is represented by Stux Gallery in New York City and by Heriard-Cimino in New Orleans.
