Profile

Aimee Melaugh

Aimee Melaugh’s paintings present a burst of memory, depicting a moment in time and have the potential to be viewed as a door to re-examine past events, inviting the viewer to be transported into a different time and space. Her paintings utilise abstract and figurative elements to explore fragmented memories and emotions. The figures in her paintings are often blurred and merge into their surroundings.  Body parts along with other objects appear in certain sections and disappear in others, creating a narrative with no ending or beginning.  Her recent work has developed in order to investigate wider issues which have taken place in Ireland and worldwide.
