Margaret Parsons

... is an artist and arts educator living in New Orleans, LA. In her one-line drawings and paintings, she is examining the paradox of an ordinary yet mystical body-experience, of the body existing as a very basic, breathing, digesting system, but also the richly dense fabric of our spiritual lives. Margaret is interested in an art of verbs, an art that is unfolding, swimming, dancing, bowing, becoming. Her kinesthetic investigations have been translated into paintings, prints, animations, and zines, and when she is not in the classroom or underwater, she can be found in the studio expanding her one-line drawings into large-scale pieces.
