Further Reading

 
Maggie Brink’s paintings —layered and ghost-like representations of inanimate objects, landscapes and figures— are exhibited alongside sculptural works and textiles that are dyed, printed and sewn in different ways, sometimes with graphic imagery or text overlaid.
 
Transforming her references— tv shows, cinema and theatre, slogans, generic branding, (pseudo/) science, popular culture, history and mythology and a growing archive of her photographs and found images —through these constructed environments, Maggie creates and explores subtle and awkward exchanges — trading in subjective associative responses to produce open-ended and multiple meanings through her work.
 
An ongoing interest in Maggie’s practice is the way that exchange—with oneself, between oneself and other/s, with the world—and the reading and negotiation of images, texts, environments, other bodies — necessitates awareness and negotiation of boundaries: psychic, spiritual, physical, porous.
