Fallon’s work explores themes of protection and defence in domestic and maternal realms. Her practice encompasses sculptural work in metal, textile and paper; drawing, performance and photography.
Conflicts and ambivalences within familiar territories inform the initial choice of materials and technique for each work. The methods of making are crucial to revealing new ideas and resolving thought processes intrinsic to the original starting point of the piece.
As well as an individual practice, Fallon also works in collaborative groups and collectives, both in Ireland and England. The two disparate ways of working feed into one another and are therefore equally important parts of her practice.
