'These Giants were created in a small space for a big space. My work renders stories visible, often taking the shape of hybrid beings. I assemble colours and symbols as they come, as an open tale designed so the viewer is free to interpret it as they feel.

Wanting to break away from the traditional square and rectangular format of the canvas, I hand-painted large custom-cut pieces to merge with Woolwich Works’ architecture and invade the industrial settings with splashes of colour.

The hanging structure is an integral part of this installation, echoing Woolwich’s maritime history with colourful nautical rope and a repetitive use of sailors' knots.

The pieces are tied-up from all sides, big yet hanging by simple threads in a fragile equilibrium.'

Artist Bio:

Margaux Carpentier is an image maker and story-teller working mainly in London, sometimes in France, and further away.

She creates pictures using a symbolic language, so each piece can be read by all, in many different ways. Her work is inspired by the infinite combinations of colours offered by the world; her images transcribe the choreography of living things. She works on varied projects, from large murals, installations and paintings to detailed book illustrations, and even toys!
