Margot Bergman

°1934, USA

Bergman’s work in the last few decades has primarily revolved around two bodies of work, the Wonderland paintings and the Other Reveries series. For the latter, she uses existing artworks – usually found in thrift shops or flea markets – on which she adds just enough to draw out a portrait latent in the image. These collaborations are alternately playful, haunting, surrealistic, melancholic and evocative, and they betray an incredibly potent imagination. In her Wonderland paintings, Bergman created a post-apocalyptic or prehistoric topography populated by explosively animated creatures.
