Margit Szilvitzky’s oeuvre is segmented by changes of medium and shifts in perspective, which make for the profile of a diverse artist who also produced a significant body of theoretical work. Having graduated from the Academy of Applied Arts, she worked as a fashion designer before she – as a Hungarian pioneer of autonomous textile art – began to experiment with textile.

As an organic development following from her experiences in textile art, Szilvitzky, in her search for new directions, turned to painting in the late eighties. Drawing, collage and experimentation with materials remained defining elements throughout her oeuvre.
