Marge Organo’s latest works are fundamentally a paean to the human figure. While each piece varies in composition and design, she creates works within a series of graceful forms allowing the viewer to understand the human condition better.

Using glass as her medium, she utilizes its transparency, mirror surfaces, and translucency to permit one to “see-through” her sculpted images and figures. In effect, she offers more than what the eye can see, providing an opportunity for a deeper exploration of her own insights and vision of humanity. They become, under Organo’s meticulous artistic baton, “windows of perception”.

The elegance of the medium only helps to enrich the visual experience further. Organo’s creative artworks prove to be three-dimensional canvases that present a larger narrative: that the human being is full of complexities. Some of her figures are warm, protective, and watchful while others are coy, coquettish, and reserved.  Still, others are tender, while others are statuesque, stylish and dignified, or playful, determined, if not refined and sophisticated.  The commonality amongst all of them though are they are all colorful acclamations to the female form.

With her unique approach to glass forms, she manages to incorporate different figurations that play with diffused light. In this manner, Organo succeeds in making light bend through various refractions and reflections in ways that seem almost implausible. How she manages to achieve this effect in her practice speaks of her measured method and highly cerebral approach to bringing her glass art to higher levels.
