More Info Art

Margrit Gatterbauer was born 1935 in Jablonec nad Nisou, Czechoslovakia, immigrated to Canada in the 1950's and settled in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

She is a listed Canadian artist and is represented by:

Winnipeg Art Gallery - Clara Lander Library
National Gallery of Canada - Library and Archives / Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography
Art Gallery of Ontario - Edward P. Taylor Research Library and Archives
Toronto Reference Library

Her biography is written in "A Dictionary of Canadian Artists".

Insatiably curious she opened herself to many disciplines: Glass painting and staining,
Mosaics, Mural painting and decoration, Painting and Pottery.

One of her mosaics titled "Life" was completed in 1962 and was originally mounted on a curved wall in the former Riverdale Hospital. It is now in the BridgePort Hospital near the same site. The mosaic is 2.5 metres (8 feet) high and 26 metres (85 feet) long. It contains 600,000 glass tiles, and took two and a half years to complete.

Gatterbauer's design shows a family in a scene of earth and the heavens. It was intended to inspire and encourage hospital patients with imagery showing the richness of life.

Her other works are similarly inspired. In this larger landscape painting the snow covered ground can easily be seen either as clouds opening up to an undiscovered country as she uses her trademark horizontal and vertical designs, or as a visual connection between the snow covered ground and the sky. (The photographs here do not do justice).

Frame and painting are in excellent condition, ready to hang.
