Margot Peterse (1962) attended
Utrecht Academy of Arts from 1982 to 1987. At the moment she works
as a costume designer for theatrical productions and also makes
costumes for dance and theatre groups.
In recent years she has
been impoving her skills in the liberal arts: photography, drawing,
painting and etching. A growth process. A development. But also
curiosity: What happens next?
In the individual art
forms various sides of Margot's personality come to the fore.
Not only her vision OF life but also her interaction WITH life.
Her solitary side is evident
in the photo series 'Gestolde oerkracht' ('Solidified primal force')
in which she visualizes her wonderment of life. Her expressivity
is seen in her tekenschilderingen (paint-drawings) of nudes: the
almost physical challenge of large and exhuberant work. In the
etchings you experience a part of the power she extracts from
the fight with the materials, resulting in an image that often
amazes her too. And finally, the need for creative interplay in
her work for the theatre; imagining and producing a costume that
embodies a story in that large whole of a production and one that
is is also professionally executed for the individual player,
carefully attuned to the challenges of his or her role.
Margot also finds inspiration
in sharing her work with others - like you. Her guest
book lies open for your comments, reactions and messages.
If you would like futher information concerning her work, or would
like to discuss either a project or the purchase of one of her
works you can reach Margot also by her guest
book. She would also like to hear from
you if you know of an interesting place where she could exhibit
her works for sale.
