Dolly Hobby

Soft fabrics and plastics influence the aesthetic and contextual function of Dolly’s work. Soft forms are central in her practice for their domesticity and malleable qualities, as well as their relationship to the conceptual and visual canons, which are influential in the shapes and mediums used. She uses these tools within sculpture to explore the human condition. The ideas grow from an interest in tools as an extension of the body, using fabric as the vital medium – a ubiquitous material which we spend our lives closely surrounded by. The fabrics and plastics allude to the domestic, and are exaggerated in size to elevate them into the gallery space, becoming interactive sculptures with ambiguous functions for the viewers use.
