Episode 16: “What Makes Great Art?” with Margaux Williamson

Margaux Williamson, "Living Room," 2020.

As we continue to circle the question “what makes great art?”, Sky Goodden spoke with Margaux Williamson, a slow painter who gives the greatest primacy to the work of her work, and to the thinking-through that the work requires. Based in Toronto, and known for both her intense focus in the studio and her community-building, Williamson speaks with humor and heart about where her  friends show up in her art, and the soft focus that painting requires. ‘People can be easily impressed by skill, and I know that’s not what art is.’
