Margit Sampogna

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Margit Sampogna

Canada

Margit Sampogna pursued classical art training which understand the painting techniques used by the Old Masters and the European artists of the 19th century whom she greatly admires.

Her paintings are visual narratives of fleeting moments in time; light falling on treasured objects, nature, seasonal experiences, whimsical thoughts and social commentary. While she  enjoys plein air painting, she is largely a studio painter with a strong interest in still life which for the most part is painted from life.  She views realism as a magical experience providing the artist with the possibility of creating illusions in 2D.

 

She exhibits in juried shows and her work is in private collections in Canada, the USA, England, Australia and Germany.
