Margot Moller is a contemporary New Zealand artist who works in a number of genres, a favourite being still life. Of Croatian/Kiwi descent, Margot's frequent visits to Europe & her exploration of the great art galleries of the world have inspired her to interpret the great classic still lifes by masters such as Vermeer & Morandi in a contemporary manner, through exploration in the use of brush strokes to create movement in a still object, using oil on board.
After completing a Diploma in Visual Communications with a major in illustration, printmaking & photography, Auckland-based Margot has had a lengthy career in broadcast design, with long spells at TVNZ & Sky TV. Margot uses her skills in graphics & a particular eye for detail, to bring a simplification & an intelligent structure to her still-life paintings, so that what is at first glance a simple composition, reveals a greater depth & clarity when viewed for longer.
Her still lifes & portraiture have appeared in exhibitions throughout New Zealand & are held in collections in New Zealand & Australia.
