Launching Thursday 27th Feb | 6.30-8.30pm
Ani Mollereau was born in Dublin, Ireland , of a French father and Irish mother and she inherited both their cultural influences. From an early age she became interested in art eventually specializing in sculpture. She has exhibted work extensively, both home and abroad.
Her materials are bronze, silver and bog oak . Her methods and techniques cover an extraordinary range from the rock strength of Giagormetti and Henry Moore to a delicacy born of feminism that transends gender to communicate on a spiritual level.
Ani draws on the power and beauty of animals to create sculptures, sybolising our purer selves. Her work is not about measurement but the spirit of the animal capturing the subject with poweful, flowing , graceful lines, allowing the viewer to see with the eye ,the hand and the soul.
The power and delicacy of the artist’s work tells us with certainty that there is much more to life than mundane existance. This is surely the purpose of art.
