Marguerite MacIntosh began her visual art practice after retiring from work as an architect and raising five children with her husband. She now lives with her husband in Summerland, British Columbia.
Throughout her work, Marguerite MacIntosh engages with concepts of time and place. MacIntosh examines current situations and conditions in light of the fleeting present moment, which is the only place and time in which we actually live and exist. This liminal space, between the past and the future, between our inner and outer worlds, between our physical and spiritual realities, is what drives much of her painting, drawing, and multimedia explorations. Her background in architecture, which considers the interface of the built environment within the landscape, informs her use of clear geometric elements, often lines or dots, in combination with gestural mark making and loose painterly brushstrokes.
