Photo: Monique DohogneMargots art contains a plea for recognition that we are all part of this universal whole and that we should engage with it all with love and respect. The indeter-minacy of her forms is part of this. As she says, I realised, in effect, that my work was on the boundary between figurative and abstract. And that pleased me a lot, even though it wasnt intentional on my part. Indeed, it was only others repeatedly asking the question that made her think about it. I think I like it, she says, because the viewer has to look at the drawing from a less con-ventional angle. Its like in life. The doors must be left open so as not to restrict thought and vision of the world around us. Fluidity and hybridity are impor-tant expressive qualities here. She invokes Aldous Huxleys famous dictum that, If the doors of perception were cleaned, each thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. Objects that are in a state of flux and constant becoming offer imaginative access to the universal whole. I believe that the doors are our bod-ies, says Margot, and that we shouldnt restrict ourselves to the boundaries of our bodies. We are much more.13'
