Upon completing her degree in Contemporary Arts Practice at Bath Spa in 2019, Niamh moved back to her hometown in North Devon. Inspired by story-telling and domestic settings, Niamh works predominantly with oil paint and pastels, portraying the imagery of everyday objects through impasto mark-making and bright, bold colours.

These commonplace items fill the canvas just as they fill our own domestic spaces, as Niamh explores how passing thoughts, fragmented conversations, and the randomness of memory can collocate into a vibrant jumble of our own identity and connection to home.

Underpinned by a light-heartedness and humour, Niamh’s subject-matter nods towards still life and traditional symbolism, whilst also addressing our everyday associations through familial imagery. Against the backdrop of having spent so much time in our own domestic spaces in the past year, the exhibition presents compositions that are both familiar and strange; playful and thoughtful.
