“Materials give shape to not only the work’s physicality, but equally, to its meaning”.
Margaret Dillon’s studio work aims to investigate, experiment and showcase the combined techniques of both textiles and concrete. Her work captures the meshing of technique and process exploring the territory between the durable and haptic.
Dillon works with a palette of utilitarian source materials and brings her domestic sensibilities to scaled down industrial processes in order to reveal the inner vitality of her chosen palette.
Her sculptural works are unexpected while also seeming slightly ‘out of order’ and unnatural. In merging what we wear on our bodies with what we build our cities with, she creates a transitionary composite that becomes as disturbing as it does intrigue.
