Thick luscious paint and harsh black marks are beautifully juxtaposed by the cheerful and somewhat humorous element to Niamh’s work. Her paintings reference the historical motif of the ‘still life’ whilst her technique is emotive and representative rather than precise. Somewhat reminiscent of Picasso in their juvenility whilst her use of colour and texture is considered. The work feels both precious and expressive. (Sophie Castle, 2020)
