Fragmented is a solo exhibition of paintings by Aimee Melaugh. The work is a collective exploration of catastrophic events which have taken place throughout history. References to her grandfather’s experiences in the army during World War Two are present throughout Melaugh’s work. The paintings present a burst of memory and have the potential to be viewed as a door to re-evaluate past events, inviting the viewer to be transported into a different time and space. This exhibition has been supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
