Marilyn Rathbone

Artist, Maker

My work is minimalist, a unique combination of research, art/textiles and box-making. Sometimes, my research uncovers an underlying political, social or historical issue and, when it does, the issue may become the focus of the piece. At other times, humour plays a part. My goal is to blend concept and content as simply as possible. I'd like the viewer's fingers to tingle with delight, not because the work is beautiful to look at but because it has been beautifully resolved and has integrity. read full statement
