Ani Mollereau was born in Dublin, is a wife and mother of 4 children, she is a sculptress and has exhibited extensively and won broad acceptance from the arts world and many prizes for her work, including the Oireachtas sculpture prize Her materials are bronze, silver and bog oak, and techniques cover an extensive range from the rock strength of Giacometti and Henry Moore to a delicacy born of a feminism that transcends gender to communicate on a spiritual level. From the maternal power of bronze pieces like “Motherhood” to the mixture of earthiness and spirituality found in the bog oak and silver collection entitled “Women in Celtic mythology” to the extraordinary jewellery collection entitled “Life’s secrets”. She has a great love of horses and has an afinity with them. The power and delicacy of the artist’s work tells us with certainty there is much, much more to life than mundane existence. This is the purpose of art.
