Margaret Ashman's work is a meditation on the unseen, spiritual, emotional and otherness of life. Using photographs or video stills, she creates pieces in which a solitary dancer fills or interacts with a space. Dancers or Deaf signers are photographed performing contemporary dance or signing to particular songs or texts. The manipulated imagery is transferred to multiple etching plates using traditional acids and aquatint, imparting a particular textural quality to the finished prints.

Ashman's recent series of prints, 'Tempo Rubato', literally 'robbed time', is named after a musical time signature whose beat is slightly slower or faster than a strict metronomic one. In these strange days of the pandemic, life has taken on a different pace. Time has changed its rhythm; we keep dancing until normality resumes.  This series was created from a dance video by Chinese dancer Kehua Li, or 'Lico', with the performer's permission.
