René Mullin is a Belfast based printmaker working from the Belfast Print Workshop and her own home print studio.
This work ‘Linen Song’ is her response to songs sung by linen workers in the 1900s in Ireland. The work reflects the repetition, structure, sparse, and gruelling reality of
producing linen at that time.
The work acknowledges the femininity and camaraderie of the industry workers and the songs they sang during and after work while producing Ireland’s finest export.
