My art career arguably began in my unsupervised childhood where I would make up stories to keep myself from feeling alone. This tendency has carried over into my artwork, which I describe as visual flash fiction. I use small motifs, such as houses, telephone poles, and floating eyes and mouths that are sometimes hidden in a turbulent, abstract landscape, as visual cues to create an impression of a story in the mind of the viewer. I’m always curious and excited to see how my internalized storytelling when I paint, manifest itself on the paper.

Margaret Ann Withers is a visual artist who lives and works in New York city. Her paintings are fragmentary narrative landscapes, or anti-stories that contain a flash of action or the hint of a non-linear narrative floating within a chaotic ‘landscape’. Originally from Texas, Withers has exhibited her work throughout the country and internationally in Brussels, Australia, Berlin, China and Russia. Her artwork is included in multiple private and corporate collections and has won numerous awards including a 2016 Artist in Residence, The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), 2013/2015 resident fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center, a fellowship to the Millay Colony, and a 2013 USA Project Grant.
