Margaret Lewis

Maker | Recontextualising craft.

My thinking and practice is in public art  at the intersection where the contemporary meets the community. My role as an artist and producer is to:

- bridge aesthetics

- explore the application of innovative materials

- champion excellence in making and

- engage different communities in the creation of unique art-works.

Artweek AKL Director, Deborah White in describing my work says,

“it is not enough to make “art for arts’ sake”, for the benefit of private collectors or influenced by what is currently trending instead her work takes a socially conscious attitude in the ideas presented and the materials used, the end result is well developed and powerful.”
