Margo Farr





Through her studio practice, Margo Farr creates sculptures and installations in response to environmental and political issues. Both her art education and her history as an art therapist inform her current exploration of our human vulnerability and the dichotomy of hope and futility in the face of dispossession. Farr takes her inspiration from nature and its potential to heal. She draws on natural sources for her materials, including branches, leaves, lichens and beeswax, in combination with plaster gauze, felted wool, and stitched textiles. She recognizes that she is an uninvited guest on the traditional lands that have been cared for and stewarded for thousands of years by the Lekwungen Peoples, known today as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, and commonly referred to as Victoria, BC.
