Margot Broug is an artist and poet living in Newcastle NSW, originally from The Netherlands.
She is fascinated by life as a fundamentally creative process and how this has its own trajectory in which she participates. For her this means cultivating curiosity, acceptance, embodied presence and a love of beauty to explore experiences and themes of consciousness in all areas of her life.
In her art practice she plays with this through figurative abstract oil painting and pen drawing.
Margot works without preconceived ideas of how a work will look.
A drawing is started by following the line to go where it wants. The line is akin to the creation of a physical reality in consciousness, and how the figurative and symbolic are emergent in that.
A painting is created through layering of textures, colours, perspectives and realities.
The writing of poetry she experiences as a conversation between a bigger wisdom and herself. Receiving what is written for herself enables an opening up and expansion understanding of her own experience .
In her practice of InterPlay within the InterPlay community, she discovers emerging creativity in the embodied pursuit of enjoyment and fun in improvisation in connection with others.
