In this touring exhibition ‘Mi Camino a través del Arte’ Úna shares a very personal six year journey of self-discovery through art which led to a first class honours de-gree in Textile Design/Textile Art & Artefact from NCAD in 2015.
She invites the viewer to walk through the pieces each representing barriers or is-sues that arise on a journey of change. ‘A journey from heart to head’.
Her work is influenced by her background in communication, personal development and the complexities of language.
Her studio ‘RushNot’ is informed by ideas of sustainability, the environment and worryingly fast pace of consumption and subsequent waste. Using mainly re-purposed textiles for their rich narrative, the pieces are quirky, instantly recognisable and always thought provoking.
Through her labour intensive work she explores our emotional relationship with Time, Materials and Self.
