Marge Organo’s latest works are fundamentally a paean to the human figure. While each piece varies in composition and design, she creates works within a series of graceful forms allowing the viewer to understand the human condition better.
Using glass as her medium, she takes advantage of its transparency, mirror surfaces, and translucency to permit viewers to see through her sculpted images and figures. In effect, she offers more than what the eye can see, providing an opportunity for a deeper exploration of her own insights and vision of humanity. They become, under Marge’s meticulous artistic baton, “windows of perception.”
The elegance of the medium only helps to enrich the visual experience further. Marge’s creative works prove to be three-dimensional canvases that present a larger narrative: that the human being is full of complexities. Some of her figures are warm, protective, and watchful while others are coy, coquettish, and reserved. Still others are tender, while others are statuesque, stylish and dignified, or playful, determined, if not refined and sophisticated—what’s common among all of them, though, is they are all colorful acclamations to the female form.
Starting barely less than a decade ago while focusing first on the rudiments of painting Marge then moved to figurative sculpture using resin and bronze as her earlier media. She then pursued studies in glass sculpture at the prestigious and internationally renowned Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, where she was awarded a scholarship at her second year of study.
