‘My mother’s past is my past’.
‘Pulled by the gravitational force of memory, towards the shadow land of the past, Margo mines the rich folklore of her mother’s community and her intimate affinity with nature.’ Des Kenny, Draíocht.
Margo’s strong connection to her mother and family-place plays heavily on her work. In big and boisterous drawings, Margo tells the many stories of her mother; her childhood, her land and its rich folklore tales. They are the remembrance and the expression of both these stories and of the changes seen in the landscape of Teeromoyle in South West Kerry – her mother’s place …
Accenting her ancestor’s land, its myths and traditions, Margo captures totemic animals particular to her mothers hillside. Embedded in poetry and folklore, she says of these animals’ wild and mysterious presence.. ‘They just have this otherness about them. They share the world with us, but they don’t seem really aware of us.’
