Laoise Ní Ghríofa (b. 1999, Galway) is a visual artist based in Galway City, who has completed a degree in Contemporary Art in CCAM, GMIT. Her interest in colour is something that has remained throughout her studies and is reflected in her work. This interest as well as the enjoyment one can get from making or viewing art forms a key part of her practice.
Through the medium of paint, Laoise Ní Ghríofa creates both ambiguous and recognisable works of art. Her work creates experiences using immersive memory for herself but also for the viewer. These works conjure scenes that could be about anything.
With the use of photographs as a reference, she can create something new that is then transferred onto canvas using bright colours and patterns.
It is left to the viewer to decide for themselves what they think is happening, and therefore everyone has a different experience with the artwork.
