Margo Selby is an artist working with colour and geometric form. Her handwoven artworks are made on dobby looms, and commissioned, exhibited and collected worldwide.

Margo’s works are painterly, regarding the optical mixing of pure colour – and sculptural, in that they are constructed. The colour becomes integral to the piece, as the threads are assembled in layers; colour and structure unite. 

Margo takes inspiration from visual culture: typography; hand-crafted textiles; and architecture – and connects to the modernist tradition of constructivist art.

Margo Selby at British Art Fair 2023

Represented by Cynthia Corbett Gallery.

Margo is thrilled to be part of British Art Fair 2023, showcasing modern and contemporary British art, with Cynthia Corbett Gallery.

Cynthia and Margo included her handwoven artworks Nexus series selection.

' I’m interested in the relationship between the body and the machine, hand and industry, craft and technology. The loom, and the disciplined nature of weaving as a practice, provides boundaries and constraints which can be tested. The orderly nature of the craft of weaving is reflected in the developing designs of the artworks. I am satisfied by rhythmic and uniform repetition – where each element of a composition is changed in a methodical progression: Nexus. '
