Contemporary set design by Margeaux Walter
Margeaux Walter is an American artist based in New-York. Her work is made of experimentations around daily life on a social, or personal level. Each piece is a mix of different images, often playing with the border between reality and fantasy. In the series “All natural”, created in quarantine, she created images that reflect a human desire to connect with nature, and the failure of that connection with the influence of commerce, consumerism, lifestyle and comfort. Due to Covid-19, we have become even more isolated from nature, from each other, and from the world, multiplying some of these emotions..
Margeaux Walter has received multiple honors from Foundations or International Photography Awards. She has been awarded artist-in-residence programs at Montalvo Arts Center, MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Marble House Project, VCCA, Red Gate Gallery in Beijing and BigCi in Bilpin, Australia (Environmental award). In 2020 she was the recipient of the Sony Alpha Female Award (2020). She is represented by Winston Wachter Fine Art in NY / Seattle, and Foto Relevance in Houston, TX, and has participated in dozens of exhibitions at institutions such as MOCA in Los Angeles, CA, Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ, The Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY, The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH, Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa, CA, Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma, WA, and the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA. Her work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, New York Post, Seattle Times, Boston Globe, Courrier International, and Blouin Art Info.
