Meg is a textile artist living in South London. Graduating from LCC in 2015 with a first in film and television, Meg also has previous experience in set design and sculpture. She is currently working towards a career in curation.
My work follows an obsession with texture and light. I am drawn by the way they can induce such a visceral and emotional response purely from their aesthetic. It is this that I endeavour to explore within my work, using various techniques such as embroidery, knitting, shibori and felting. Thematically I am intrigued by anything that explores underrepresented areas of gender or mental health.
Currently I am using my embroidery and knitting to examine the stigmatisation and degradation of female genitalia in society. Embroidery and knitting are commonly seen as outdated and 'crafty'. I see this as a problem for textiles being fully accepted as an art form, rather than just 'art's and crafts'; it demeans the skill and expertise needed, which is even more concerning when it is seen as 'women's work'. By using histrionic techniques to explore current affairs, I aim to expose such double standards, whilst also poking fun at the old constructs of such 'hobbies' keeping the women distracted, busy and firmly in the home.
