Marguerite Horner was born in Lincoln in 1954. After completing her B.A. in Fine Art in her twenties, she was offered two solo exhibitions, at The Mappin Art Gallery Sheffield and Usher Art Gallery Lincoln. Art historian and critic Professor Frances Spalding CBE reviewed these exhibitions in ‘Arts Review’ writing ‘The intrigue of her work depends partly on the knife-edge balance maintained between painterliness and hard-edge photo-realism by varying the sharpness of focus’.
She has since been exhibiting widely in Art Fairs and Group Shows, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition The Threadneedle Prize and The Lynn Painters Stainer Exhibition. In 2011 Marguerite exhibited at the 54th Venice Biennale in ‘Afternoon Tea‘ with WW Gallery and in 2012 had her first London Solo Exhibition ‘The Seen and Unseen’‘ at The PM Gallery in Ealing. The catalogue essay was written by Lady Marina Vaizey C.B.E. (former Art Critic for the FT and Sunday Times and a Turner Prize Judge).
