Maggie Henton

Profile

Much of Maggie Henton’s recent practice has been developed in response to specific sites. She is interested in quality of place, and in how places are constructed and inhabited. The form the work takes reflects her response to the site. Working methods include; drawing, stitch, printmaking, photography, video, and installation.

Residencies form an important part of her working method, and provide the stimulus for the development of new ideas and help to inform her choice of materials and processes. The apparent restrictions of working on site (and often out of a suitcase) are a creative challenge and a prompt to think outside her comfort zone.

Maggie Henton has had residencies in; Hill End, NSW; Bundanon, NSW; Canberra School of Art, Australia; and has worked on projects in Spain and Greece.  Her work is represented in numerous public collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the American Crafts Museum, and the Crafts Council Collection.
