A STAB IN THE DARK AT GARTER LANE

Garter Lane Arts Centre, Sept 27th to Nov 13th 2021

The exhibition opening is Saturday October 9th at 2pm

Hannagh Ní Mhaonaigh is a Dublin based, Irish Artist. In her practice, Ní Mhaonaigh creates expanded paintings by using oil & acrylic paint on various mediums including linen, chipboard, found mahogany door frames and architectural wooden panels.

The artist’s painting process involves removing, sanding back and building up layers of paint repeatedly to create abstract artworks that sit somewhere between painting and sculpture.

Her playful use of materials enables colour, shape and texture to be primary driver in her work. Her repetitive practice of overpainting/paring back leads to an intangible honesty and energy in the successful paintings. The ones that managed to make it.
