Time Fragments:

Traces of Newfoundland

the artwork of

Margaret Ryall

Margaret’s “studio” looks more like a cabinet shop than an artist’s lair. There is a table saw and a chop saw and boxes of “special” wood pieces. As she says, the pieces find her, they jump out at her as she walks by. They are fragments of where she lives, fragments of Newfoundland’s past.

 

She assembles these significant bits of local history into wooden bas-relief constructs worthy of the Modernist architects.
