Gifford Lane Art Stroll

I am preparing for the Gifford Lane Art Stroll, Sunday, March 6th.

Can’t wait. It will be a lot of fun and hopefully I will sell another of my african Portrait paintings.

And a lot of my necklaces.

Lucky Dube, “Going back to my roots”, another beautiful Song

“Let’s dance”

"Let's dance", african artwork by margrit

I loved to paint this painting with a lot of red color, color of emotion and movements, the fabulous decorations on the Surma girl’s face, with a lot of rich copper-gold powder  accentuating the ancient  pattern of tiles and carpets.

Dogon Statue, love it

Dogon Statue

I bought this Dogon Statue  from an old African friend. I love it!

Dogon artifacts are my favourite!

As a general characterization of Dogon statues, one could say that they render the human body in a simplified way, reducing it to its essentials. Some are extremely elongated with emphasis on geometric forms. The subjective impression is one of immobility with a mysterious sense of a solemn gravity and serene majesty, although conveying at the same time a latent movement.
