About Margaret Girle:
Australian artist Margaret Girle celebrates life through her artwork. Whether rendering portraits or illustrating the natural world, she paints bright and vivacious pictorials. Her use of space and colors make her paintings thought provoking and yet the subject matter is still highly accessible to the common viewer.
With passionate dabs of paint, Girle captures the magnificence of wild animals. Gazing powerfully at the viewer, her lions and tigers stealthily emerge from the heart of the jungle. Her stampeding horses exemplify her masterful display of line, as she paints the strong arcs of muscles. There is a fluidity of motion inherent within her paintings. Even when depicting a flower representative of tranquility, Girle paints an action shot of a lotus unfolding. Like Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec before her, Girle also explores the beauty of dancers. She translates the energy and movement of flamenco dancers with dynamic flourishes of color, while still showing the dancers’ exquisite grace through her careful composition.
