Paintings by Niamh McConaghy - 1st December to 31st December 2020

Based near the shores of Lough Neagh, Northern Ireland, Niamh McConaghy takes inspiration from the surrounding green areas. The vast openness to both the Lough and the fields are frequently transferred to her paintings through blasts of colour and energetic movement within her brush strokes. More recently, she has explored figurative painting, often choosing banal, unmotivated or blank expressions from either herself or those closest to her. These paintings are reflective towards the ongoing pandemic and the behaviours that have accumulated due to lockdown.

Niamh McConaghy

A consistent theme running across her work, is her titling process. Selecting quotes or reviews of people and places as titles of the work, creates a suggestive and often, satirical tone to the intention of the painting. She has exhibited in Northern Ireland and Scotland and has consistently produced commissioned pieces that have ranged from memories of places/ spaces to portraits of animals and people. She is currently a PhD student at Ulster University, with a research focus exploring how a combination of visual art and poetry can impact the communication and understanding of chronic pain.

Over lockdown, she advertised smaller pieces of work under the #artistsupportpledge on her Instagram page.
