Green On Red Gallery, Dublin
Niamh McCann is an Irish Artist based in Dublin.
McCann considers herself a landscape artist, balancing portrayal of the view as subject with a primary concern in the culturally constructed. Works delve into the pivotal role of the architectural trope (the built) and the mediated environment (the status). The artist is interested in objects becoming the palimpsest of disparate influences and idealisms removed from original incarnation by time; layered repositories of various narratives and meanings. Explorations take the form of concise built-objects in multi-mediums, often presented within larger installations and site-responsive pieces.
Niamh McCann is the recipient of various Arts Council of Ireland awards, and residencies at Cemeti Arthouse, Indonesia; HIAP, International Artists' Residency, Cable Factory, Helsinki, Finland, URRA Artist Residency, Argentina, Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Ireland; and of Perspective and EV+A exhibition awards
Her work is represented in the collections; Irish Museum of Modern Art, the OPW, Limerick City Gallery, Swansea City Council, The London Institute, Hiscox Collection, London.
