Niamh Coffey’s practice is concerned with the effects of the miniature and scale. Her work takes the form of large scale wall drawings and paper-based drawings. She has just completed a three year BA (Hons) Sculpture and Expanded Practices in NCAD. She is a Dublin-based artist, originally from Co. Laois. Niamh’s work is interested in the heightened awareness and constant daydream that the miniature evokes of a subject. Zooming in to reveal some thing unexpected opens an overwhelming threshold of wonder where the impractical seems possible. Her drawings make a comparison between the miniature to pornography and voyeurism, They loosely employ the imagery of microphilia and macrophilia, both image-based sexual fantasies related to size, shrinking and expanding, Lilliputian women, giantesses and vorarephilia. Since 2014, she has taken part in seven exhibitions, including collaborative group exhibitions with students from UCD’s Science and Architecture department, collaborative exhibitions with other NCAD Fine Art students and two group exhibitions with students from NCAD’s Sculpture department.
