Sinéad’s work is based largely on emotional response and is derived from everyday observations of people, landscapes (real and imagined) co-dependencies and their narratives.
She records in writing, drawing and photography, developing drawings, paintings and installations from various stances and instances. Her work often captures the essence of her chosen subject, creating the illusion of detail, through energetic mark making focusing on impressionistic abstraction.
Sinéad is an activist for sharing the work of artists and creating collaborative projects.
Visual gatherings of moments spent entranced by landscapes, daydreams and reality encircled by family life illustrating the daily life of artist Sinead Smyth. Smyth's work focuses on capturing movement and the essence of atmosphere, communicating emotion and fleeting changes in mood created by surroundings and situations.
