Margrit Lewczuk, 1952

Margrit Lewscuk (b. 1952, New York City) is an American artist known for her monumentally scaled, interlacing abstractions. Where she previously painted small, earth-toned abstract canvases, for the past two decades Lewczuk has explored vibrantly coloured abstract paintings of overlapping organic and geometric forms on a monumental scale.   Inspired by Graffiti Art, tribal motifs and patterns derived from ancient art, particular Aztec murals and textiles, Lewscuk’s paintings balance the geometric and the organic with a sensory energy.
 
Lewscuk graduated from Queens College, New York (1923) and the Brooklyn Museum Art School (1976), and has taught figure drawing at the Metropolitan Museum for over 20 years. Since she began exhibiting as an artist in 1976, her work has been featured in dozens of solo and group exhibitions and numerous significant institutions, including the Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Maier Museum, Virginia; MOMA PS1, Long Island City, New York, and Museo Internazionale della donna nell’Arte, Abruzzo, Italy.

Recent solo exhibitions include the New York Studio School, New York (2019); the Project Room, Brooklyn (2015); Imogene Holloway Gallery, New York (2014); and John Davis Gallery, New York (2011).
