i’m jealous of margaret kilgallen… again


I was just clicking around on YouTube today, as you do on a lazy Sunday morning, and I came across this video of Margaret Kilgallen talking about her work. I have been a fan of Margaret’s work for years and wrote about her last February. Sadly, Margaret died in 2001 at the very young age of 33, and until today’s video I had only seen the odd photo of her. It was fantastic to see her painting, and talking about her process. Her philosophies around work done by hand are so inspiring. I’m not going to beat myself up for an imperfect line ever again! Thanks Margaret… wherever you are.

    If you haven’t already, watch the documentary, Beautiful Losers. It’s available as a watch it now on netflix. She’s in it. It’s fantastic. You’ll probably love it.
