Margo Random

I am interested in exploring different colour palettes and unusual compositions to impart a mood or feeling.  I hope that all my work, whether it be a portrait or a bowl of fruit contains some emotional undertones.  I also like to make art viewing the composition as a whole and not get too bogged down in detail.  In this way, I hope to engage the viewer in a two way conversation that leaves room for their own feelings and interpretations.

Margo’s work encompasses landscape, still life and portraits with an abstract sensibility and a love of colour.

‘There is a wide range of subject matter and technique in this exhibition as I am inspired by lots of things! Faces, rockpools, fruit in a bowl; they all grab me and then the question is, what technique will be the best to portray them? And then, how about trying to investigate the same subject in a different medium or in a more abstracted way? So many possibilities! So here you will find collage, oil on canvas, monoprint, woodcut prints, ink with watercolour and charcoal drawings with acrylic.
The choice of colour pallette and the composition can help to convey different moods, from limited Old Master colours to the loud primaries; from a zoomed- in perspective to a grand open space. I also try not to be overly concerned with detail so as to encourage the viewer to form their own feelings and interpretations about what they are seeing.’
Though originally from New York, Margo has spent her adult life in her adopted city of London. Following a career as a musician, songwriter and actress, she has finally found art to be the perfect means of expression. She studies at Putney School of Art and recently Morley College and for the past thirteen years has been passionate about making art. Margo has shown her work at Putney School of Art, Sprout Arts, Wandsworth Artists Open House, Jonaquest Art, Urban Art Fair, Uthink Festival, Streatham Art23 and Parsons Green Art Festival. Her ‘Tooting Bec’ limited edition prints were acquired by London Transport Museum and ‘Beach at Carbis Bay’ was longlisted for the Jacksons Painting Prize 2021. Her painting ‘Big Fruit at Night’ was included in the Mall Galleries’ Figurative Art Now exhibition 2021.
