Margaret Griffith’s QD and 5D were made as part of the “Utopia/Dystopia” portfolio, curated by artist Miyo Stevens-Gandara. Miyo invited 26 artists to each pick two cards from a full deck, incorporating a diverse range of interpretations and ideas into a single, unified collection.  Here, Griffith pairs a static chain-link fence -- representing division, enclosure, and boundaries -- with a warped and distorted gold fence, representing fluidity, and movement, and a disruption of power.

Griffith often works within installation, sculpture and drawing media, experimenting in form, shape, and spatial organization. Considering herself an “urban scavenger,” she often looks to her environment for inspiration-- looking at lines and patterns and their relationship with representation and the urban landscape. Further, she relies on the “concept,” or lack thereof, to represent urban environments and their constant transformation.

Griffith received her B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art, followed by her M.F.A. from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has been included in a multitude of solo and group exhibitions spanning the country, including instillations at LAX airport. She has also developed her career as an artist in residency and guest lecturer.
