Margaret Evangeline's newest body of work is borne from the New York artist's experience of the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Stained with the stench of fire and destruction from the nearby attacks, Evangeline's studio became a stifling space that was leaving the artist at a loss. Having been offered a residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, Margaret Evangeline embraced the opportunity to escape the oppression of her immediate terror-stricken environment and enter a fresh space in which to reflect and process the national trauma that had so closely impacted her. During her time in Santa Fe, the artist used gunfire to create haunting metallic pieces far different from the paintings we have come to expect from her.
