Marga Duin grew up in a world full of color. Her father was a bulb grower, enabling her to come into contact with the intense color of the flowering bulb fields at a very young age. They fascinated her, and this fascination for nature and color has always stayed with her.
Two different elements are central in Marga’s work; the model and the abstraction. Her large chalk and pastel drawings and collages may be defined as modern classical. She draws from life and in doing so, has developed a style that is her own. The drawings serve as backup for her paintings, which are on the borderline of abstraction and realism.
