"Fragments" by Margo Van Erkelens is inspired by archeological finds in her garden. The base is foam, manipulated and heated into shape and painted to look like ancient pottery fragments. Layer upon layer, van Erkelens builds up her pieces to have texture and depth. The warm, earthly colors meander across the canvas. Van Erkelens uses many mediums and techniques to create the texture of her works; she glues, smooths, heats, tears, breaks down, and builds up again, often without a predetermined plan. Margo works intuitively, the ultimate letting go, a pure experience of color and form. Only in the final, lighter layers does the canvas get a definitive representation.
