Critique written by the renown Art Critic Giampaolo Trotta, for the OpenArtCode Exhibition in Florence, Italy.


The stories told by Margaret LaBounty are ethereal fragments of painting and sculpture that appear timeless, eternal and without space. By way of the natural sensations coming from the most diverse American landscapes (starting from those known too well by the artist in ‘her’ magical lands of Colorado), they speak of endless widths and vertiginous heights, of profound depths and cosmic harmonies. Oceans, lands and skies are mixed in the pictorial pigments or in the clay of her Totem, to reveal ancient ancestral memories of lost civilizations (where they surely find echoes from the native north Americans), sounds, scents and feelings that re-emerge from our very distant anthropological experience. An engaging naturalism that does not dress itself with a banal and postcard-like imitation of Nature and does not copy photography, but instead truly captures the essence, that is the soul or the deep sense, keeping only fragments of the figuration, immersed in a harmonic palette of colors where it is the color itself that sculpts landscapes and mountains, skies, forests, lakes, sunsets, twilights, dawns and seas. The creative inputs pulse here, since the beginning of the universe and the observer is invited to watch in silence the chant and rhythm of Mother Earth (Anima Mundi); stories that we can learn from and then make our own; in an eternal cyclic inspiration.

Comments:  Suzanne Smith Arney originated and wrote the “HERArt” column for HER magazine from 2004-2012.  Each column profiled a woman artist in the metro area, along with photographs of her work. Her Art/Herselfcompiles the 48 features into a beautiful book. In addition to being a history of those years, it also serves as a guidebook to the current art scene as most of the artists interviewed still live and work in the metro. Even more, says the author, the book can be taken as a handbook to artists and art work generally, revealing the hows and whys of artists’ motivations, approaches, processes, and techniques. Arney has added a preface and “Reflections,” short essays that comment on and update the original profiles. The book also includes forewords by Janet L. Farber, Director, Phillip Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art, and by John Rogers, Owner/Director, Gallery 72.

I participated and exhibited my art in what was called the “most prestigious art event in the world.

The Exposition at the Eiffel Tower.”  This exposition was part of the 125th celebration of the Eiffel tower and I participated in what was said as “The most important artists in the world to participate at "La Grande Exposition Universelle" held inside the Eiffel Tower, “Gustave Eiffel” Hall on the first floor.  

  The Celebration and Exhibition was all day October, 23rd.   Here are some pictures of the event along with me receiving an award presented by Jose Dali, son of the late Salvador Dali.
