Hannah 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 artists’ painting process involves removing, sanding back and building up layers of pain repeatedly to create abstract artworks that sit somewhere between painting and sculpture. Her playful use of materials enables colour, shape and texture to be the primary driver in her work. Her repetitive practice of overpainting/paring back leads to an intangible honesty and energy in successful paintings. The ones that managed to make it.Artist Residency Programme
The Atelier Now Artist Residency programme encourages submissions from emerging visual artists working with all types of mediums – painting, sculpture, video, photography, textiles. The residency covers a four-month period and offers a working studio space in Dublin’s for the selected artist to execute new work. The residency is outcome-focused and is aimed at artists who already have their initial concepts in place. Essentially, providing a physical space for artists to develop and execute their ideas.
The ambition of this project is to provide emerging artists with a safe space to engage with and develop new work while providing additional opportunities to support the growth of their professional careers and access to a network of other creatives.
These additional opportunities include Mentorship, Mindfulness, Print Release opportunity & Exhibition.
