The repetitive patterns of Margaret Lanzetta's work are deeply familiar and satisfying. Taken from sources as diverse as Indonesian textiles, industrial die cut metal or calligraphic text; they are simultaneously ancient and fresh. Lanzetta is commenting on the commonality of historic and contemporary visual systems in our shrinking world. 

Digitally manipulated patterns are carefully hand stenciled and painted on the canvas further blurring the line between past and present, the mechanically generated and hand wrought.

The artist’s work is in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. She has shown, lectured and taught widely in the US and Europe. Lanzetta is a graduate of Holy Cross College, MA and has an MFA from School of Visual Arts, NYC.
