Margaret DeLima

I am a sculptor, trained in clay and working in paper. With nearly weightless paper, I deconstruct heavy matters. I create intimate works that examine my relationships with others. I create small environments or tableaux to explore a memory or an exchange, enshrining nostalgic and often obsolescent forms. I situate the ephemeral, in temporary, miniature three-dimensional reliquaries; I make sacred containers for fleeting moments. I am employed in teaching but working in relationships. I am a lifelong learner, building meaning with every life interaction. I am curious about our common experiences and our unique understandings. I remember and reveal stories to remind you of your own.

I am available for art-making, teaching and workshops, and community collaboration. Most artwork available for purchase.
