Mairead Mccormack: Formidable Parallels
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.
