All Is Connected In Nature and Time

About the event

Closed Sundays

A stunning exhibition of works by textile artist” Ann Mechelinck.

Ann has a unique connection with her environment and seeks to capture not just the different shades and shapes of moss but also the soothing, peaceful and positive impact that nature, and especially tiny plants, have on her. Each piece encapsulates a sense of wonder, care, and nurture. The slow and repetitive processes of weaving, crochet, and embroidery allow Ann the time to reflect, to contemplate and meditate, away from a world that often doesn’t make sense.

“Undoubtedly it is due to living in the countryside and its prevalence in my immediate surroundings that I became fascinated by moss, captivated by the different textures and various colours of green growing in abundance on stones, stone walls, on trees and in the undergrowth of the magical forests of West Cork,” Ann Mechelinck.

Ann merges traditional techniques into contemporary, abstract artworks that convey comfort and tranquillity.
