"My reverence for nature, mark making and spirituality

are closely linked – one cannot exist without the others.

Thus, mark making is a spiritual expression for me”

Who I Am

Multimedia Artist

Margot Stolz is a multimedia artist who resides in Summerland, amongst the picturesque orchards, vineyards and sand bluffs of the South Okanagan area of British Columbia, Canada.

 

Born in Vancouver, BC, her childhood years were spent

on a remote acreage overlooking the Fraser Valley where she was home schooled.  As an only child, her creative imagination developed quickly, playing amongst the unique flora and fauna of the coastal Rainforest.  Margot’s reverence for nature is reflected in her art.

 

She has been mentored by well known Brtitish Columbia artist Jim Kalnin, her BFA graduate advisor. And by internationally renowned Canadian artists Peter von Tiesenhausen and Sarah Anne Johnson.

 

More recently, by American contemporary artist Wayne White (Beauty is Embarassing film 2012) and by American Author & creator

of the first Simpsons episode "Simpsons roasting over an open fire" Mimi Pond.

MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION ARTIST

I conceptualize, write, collect

natures ephemera such as feathers, nests, bones, styx & stones..

I am a Bowerbird.  I enjoy working with various mixed media, including felt making  & beeswax.

 

I'm influenced by the philosophy

of the transcendentalists, Paul Klee, Vasily Kandinsky and Franz Marc.

 

My reverence for nature, mark making and spirituality are closely linked – one cannot exist without

the others.  Thus, mark making is

a personal spiritual expression.

 

I admire the work of these contemporary artists: India Flint, Marcel Dzama, Lyndal Osborne, Noah Scalin, Stepahnie Metz and Michael Brennand-Wood

 

Influential movements:

Conceptualism, Contemporary Installation Art, German

Expressionism.
