First Solo Exhibition by the artist of the acclaimed Women of Fingal Tapestry

Wednesday 3rd Aug 2022 – Monday 3rd Oct 2022

Agnieszka ‘Uisce’ Jakubczyk, who celebrated the heritage of women from Fingal in her acclaimed large scale woven piece, now on display in the Chapel of the Swords Castle, will launch her first solo exhibition at The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre in Naul on the 3rd of August. This showcases the artist’s experimental paper and fibre art pieces, in two series “14 Days” and “9 Accents”. Uisce also includes some of her medium scale woven works in this show.

The inspiration for each piece comes from the artist’s everyday life and varies from physical observation, psychological sensation and feelings, transformed into visual art works. The pieces reflect  moments of Uisce’s life as artist, as a woman, as a human… gathered together. Uisce’s art pieces reflect her process starting with being a quiet observer, of looking into her inner self and watching her surroundings in a very focused way.

Opening : 6.30PM 3/8/2022, The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Naul Village, Co. Dublin, K32 AY27

Wine and light refreshments will be served.

Agnieszka ‘Uisce’ Jakubczyk is a fibre artist and art teacher from Poland, living in Ireland since 2004. Her textile art has been exhibited in group exhibitions in Poland, Ireland, Hungary, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania and Taiwan. She is  a recipient of several awards. Her main focus is on minimal woven art and also medieval styles, techniques and images in embroidery. Recently she started working with paper art which became an important stream of her creations. 

Uisce graduated from People’s University in Turno, Poland, in 1992, with a title of journeyman in artistic weaving . She abandoned weaving and studied music performance and musicology.

Several years after moving to Ireland she started practicing the art of medieval style embroidery and later on became a teacher of adult education classes and a variety of fibre arts workshops. 

Inspired by her students’ enthusiasm and creations she started weaving again in 2015. Her woven pieces were selected for various group exhibitions and she received her first award already in 2016, which encouraged her to explore the art of weaving further.

In 2018 she took part in a two-day workshop of paper making with Tunde Toth which opened a new avenue of Uisce’s creative journey. While at a Finnish art residency at Arteles in December 2018, she focused entirely on working on experimental paper art.

In 2021 Uisce wove her first commissioned piece: a large scale work for Fingal County Council, under the Creative Ireland Programme – the Women of  Fingal Tapestry, which is at present on display at Swords Castle.

Currently Uisce’s art work is focused on experimental paper art and minimalist woven art with a variety of materials.  She finds inspiration in nature, following the lines of landscape, macro and micro structures, she observes and expresses the process of growth and decay, ethereal forms of water, mist, wind, rain, light… She likes combining contrasting materials, e.g. rough linen with metallic thread and wire. She also loves foraging for unusual materials from nature and includes them in her art pieces. In her large woven art she aims to communicate through a language of visual symbols about issues touching the human being as an individual and as a part of society. Uisce’s particular interest lies in undertaking ecological, social and mental health issues as subjects in art.
