6 November 2007 - 7 December 2007

Press Release

Artist info

The Directors of Marlborough Fine Art are delighted to announce their first London exhibition of sculptures by Cathie Pilkington. Cathie Pilkington is a sculptor whose figurative tradition has been picked out sideways rather than historically, assembled from disparate lowly or debased sources, folk museums, souvenirs, self-taught road side sculptors and the like. With her seamless combination of intensively assisted readymades and modeled polychrome figures Pilkington fixes awkward cracks and gaps within contemporary sculpture, crafting, tinkering, cobbling together, mending, and improvising with great skill and integrity.
