Margaret Kammerer

Columbus College of Art & Design

My work celebrates the language, the humor, and the experiences that queer people share. The labor of using my hands to build ceramic vessels that are reminiscent of historical vases and painting them with underglazes mirrors my sense and understanding of gender performativity. The association of femininity and craft contrasted with the masculine fine art of painting creates a conversation about my own experience as a lesbian. The imagery that I choose to work with is boundless as I find inspiration and queerness in anything, whether it be biblical narratives, snippets of my friend’s bedrooms or old cartoons. My work ultimately serves as a way for me to navigate through a heteronormative popular culture as a sapphic and as a way to bring visibility of queer bodied individuals into the gallery space.
