biography

MARGARET LOVELL
DLitt (Hon), DipFA (Lond), FRBS, RWA

‘My sculptures are inspired by organic, natural forms – such as plants, and the elements of sea and wind. A recurring theme and feature of my work are undulating planes with polished edges that suggest or define a movement through space; or often the sculptures consist of two individual forms in relationship to each other, striving to create a unified harmony.’

Margaret Lovell was born in Bristol in 1939 and studied at the West of England College of Art between 1956–60. She then went on to study at the Slade School of Fine Art in London, from 1960–62, where she won first and second prizes for sculpture, drawing and etching. From 1962–63, she studied on an Italian State Scholarship Award at the Academy of Fine Art
in Florence.

Since the late 1950’s her sculpture has been exhibited extensively in the UK. She has enjoyed many solo shows, the first being in 1965 at the Marjorie Parr Gallery, London. More locally, she has regularly exhibited at Royal West of England Academy, Bristol. In 2008 her work was featured in the national touring show, ‘Unpopular Culture’, curated by the artist and ceramicist, Grayson Perry, with works selected from the Arts Council’s collection.

Margaret Lovell’s works are in many public and corporate collections throughout the UK, Europe, USA and New Zealand, including: City Museum & Art Gallery, Plymouth; The Arts Council of Great Britain; University of London, and University of Southampton. Commissioned works include: sculpture for Barclays Bank Ltd, Bristol; 5-metre high sculpture for the Great Ouse Water Authority; World Sailing Championship Trophies for John Player & Son; sculptures for World Achievement Awards, Unilever.

She is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, and a member of the Royal West of England Academy. Margaret Lovell now lives and works in New Zealand and regularly commutes to England. In 2012 she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from University of Leicester.
