Fay McCaul’s artworks combine modern materials with traditional textile techniques to create intricate hand-crafted surfaces. Fay re-invents the traditional techniques of knitting and weaving, as well as incorporating contemporary approaches, such as working with textiles infused within glass.

Often working large-scale in architectural contexts, Fay’s works take on a site-specific and dynamic role for interiors. A key element of the artworks is their relationship to light: within the design of each piece is a subtle focus on how light interact with the artwork’s surface, both through reflection and filtered translucency.

Fay studied a BA in Mixed Media Textile Design (2007), following which she completed an MA in Constructed Textile Design at the Royal College of Art (2008 – 2010). From 2017 – 2018, McCaul was invited for an art residency at the Tashkeel Gallery, Dubai, UAE, which was based in Dubai.

Having exhibited worldwide in London, Dubai, Brussels, Amsterdam and Shanghai, Fay’s work has been shown across Europe, the GCC and beyond. She has participated in exhibitions at prestigious institutions, such as London’s Tate Modern, The Barbican, and Saatchi Gallery. Her artworks can be found in many international collections, including private collections in the Middle East.
