 NIAMH TWOMEY Exhibition Opening

Niamh Twomey is a visual artist, from Waterford. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art (Painting) from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2016. Twomey has previously exhibited in the LSAD Degree Show, the Sailor’s home, the Hunt Museum in Limerick and Castle Courtyard Gallery, Birr and has been awarded the bronze award from the Limerick Art Society and the Runner up Revenue Purchase Prize for her work. Straticiem is her first solo exhibition. It explores the medium of painting and the role our personal understanding and experience plays in our interpretation of what is in front of us, the tendency to look for familiar images within abstract work, instead of allowing the painting to exist as objects themselves.   You can find out more on Niamh’s work on:
