Cultúrlann Sweeny are delighted to present ‘’ Wild Atlantic Inspiration’’ by artist Kim Thittichai. This exhibition will commence on the 02nd September.
Kim Thittichai is a textile artist, international tutor, and author of 4 books. She moved to Fodra, Loop Head from Brighton U.K. in November 2016 looking for a change of pace. It was a big change for her, but worth making that leap from a very busy and noisy city to the peace and beauty of the Loop Head Peninsula.
The rock pools of Ross Bay are an endless delight to Kim. The layer upon layer of texture and colour of the seaweeds are a never-ending inspiration. Kim has always taken photographs for creative reference and teaching aids for composition. The stunning local natural landscape of the cliffs and fields and local buildings all inspire Kim in her work and photography.
Kim’s latest flight of fancy is to create a range of work based on the hares that run around and play in the yard out side her house. There is one, larger hare, that has been christened ‘Harry’. He is subject of her latest body of work. Harry is a whimsical, rather magical, character that is going to keep Kim busy for a while to come.
The exhibition runs from the 02nd – 23rd September and all are welcome. The official opening takes place on the 4th of Sept at 6 pm and all are welcome to attend.
