“I feel an affinity to Michael Heizer's use of drawing when he carved circles in the desert with his motorcycle. I, too, am claiming land as artist's materials, but I'm using the ground to inscribe the surface of the paint.” – Margie Livingston
For the past four years, Margie Livingston has been dismantling the line between painting and performance. In a hybrid form of Action Painting, performance, and Land Art, she drags constructed paintings across terrain, inscribing the canvases with the ground to what she calls Extreme Landscape Painting or “non-painting painting.” Inherent in this process is the use of chance procedures and the knowledge that the ideas change and evolve as she gets into the work.
