Art:21 - Margaret Kilgallen

art:21

2001

Margaret Kilgallen's work reflects her encyclopedic knowledge of signs drawn from American folk tradition, printmaking, and letterpress. Kilgallen has a love of “things that show the evidence of the human hand.” Painting directly on the wall, Kilgallen creates room-size murals that recall a time when personal craft and handmade signs were the dominant aesthetic.

Margaret Kilgallen is featured in the Season 1 episode “Place” of the Art21 series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century”.
