Catherine Dormor


Catherine is a practicing artist, researcher and lecturer. Her practice is concerned with bringing together the materiality, imagery and language of cloth as a way for thinking, making and writing about materiality and making. She incorporates stitch, photography, video installation and sculpture into her works, always referencing cloth, its structures and behaviours.

She predominantly works with silks for their fluidity and lustrous qualities. Deeply sensuous, her work offers cloth as a potent carrier of expression.

Catherine has a practice-thesis PhD and is currently working on an expanded and revised version of the project for publication. She regularly exhibits both in the UK and internationally and has work in a variety of public and private collections. Catherine is lecturer and research co-ordinator at Middlesex University, where her area of specialism is textile and fashion theory.
