Mairead Mccormack: Formidable Parallels

Apr 18 | Thu | 10AM - 6PM |
View Website

Artist Mairead McCormack's work on Irish linen—born from a fascination with her native Northern Ireland's legacy of textile manufacturing—examines the interplay between the machine-made and the handmade, and the archival and the contemporary. Using embroidery, darning, collaging, printing, drawn-threading and digital design, McCormack manipulates her linen canvases with materials like colored fibers, dyes, and found documents—including paperwork from the storied Old Bleach Linen Company in Randalstown, Co. Antrim.

Venue: Irish Arts Center
