DESCRIPTION

Margaret Wharton's work focuses on the manipulation of objects such as chairs or books and their subsequent transformation into witty and critical works of art. Recent sculptures configured from chairs have an anthropomorphic quality. While objects/figures are suggested in the final works of art, the original object from which the piece was created is always apparent in an often ironic way. Precise craftsmanship and attention to detail continues to be integral to her artistic process.
