Historical Context:
"The landscape, often juxtaposed with the figure, documents time and place. I am fascinated with man's need to re-organize a nature that has its own order. I am drawn to the agricultural divisions of the land and the color of light in the Umbrian regions of Italy where time is marked with with stone walls and family vineyards. My work often contains surface writing and scratches, a reminder of our need to be remembered and to leave behind a sign of our evanescent state of existence." -Margaret Vega
