MIKALA DWYER: A Shape of Thought


Wayne Tunnicliffe

ISBN 9781741741377

Mikala Dwyer creates objects and installations that are playful and provocative. Her engaging sculptures explore ideas about shelter, childhood play, modernist design and the relationship between people and objects. Often beguiling in their colour and profusion, her works incorporate materials and objects in inventive and unexpected ways. Her work is characterised by a playful and excessive accumulation of elements _ she has created installations out of fabric, play dough, stockings, felt, vinyl, plastic, organza and nail varnish. Her choice of materials has been identified as feminine and by extension as a subtle feminist critique of recent art history.
