About Margot Sandeman
Born in Glasgow, Margot Sandeman has received several awards and has exhibited widely in Scotland and throughout Britain. In addition, she has collaborated with Ian Hamilton Finlay on publications and paintings.
'It could be the work of Matisse or a Japanese master but in its austerity, tonal harmony and harnessed energy it is emblematic of Sandeman and her ability to make line and colour dance to the same hypnotic tune. This linear dynamic ... also gives vivid life to the simplest subjects, the still-life vocabulary of shells, fruit and berries, domestic crocks and candlesticks. She is painter and poet, musician and seer, designer and decorator ... and a magician forbye' W. Gordon Smith, Scotland on Sunday, 27 October 1991.
Margot Sandeman held an exhibition of her works at New Hall in 2003.
