Sinéad Smyth | an emerging artist from Donegal, Ireland
My paintings explore landscape as a place of memory, connection and nurturing influence on being human.
My work explores sensory relationships with landscape as a place of memory, as a defining aspect of being human. I am interested in how this relationship can be maternal and nurturing, and have meaning in personal anthropology.
My oil paintings have evolved towards semi-representational, often abstract, land and seascape paintings. I work both en plein air and in my studio, using traditional and experimental processes in oil, charcoal and mixed media on paper and canvas.
