New Generation Gallery 2016

Mairead is a textile artist inspired by artifacts from the past. She explores the fragile beauty in the disintegration of tangible paper objects. Working mainly with Irish linen, Mairead investigates ways of bringing a human element into her work through embroidery. The nostalgic aesthetic and attention to detail in itself is a stark contrast to the modern, fast paced environment we live in today.
