Green On Red Gallery are pleased to announce attendance at VOLTA NY2018. The gallery presents a solo booth of the work of multidisciplinary artistNiamh McCann.

McCann considers herself a landscape artist, balancing portrayal of the view as subject with a primary concern in the culturally constructed. Works delve into the pivotal role of the architectural trope (the built) and the mediated environment (the status). The artist is interested in objects becoming the palimpsest of disparate influences and idealisms removed from original incarnation by time; layered repositories of various narratives and meanings. Explorations take the form of concise built-objects in multi-mediums, often presented within larger installations and site-responsive pieces.


Niamh McCann has recently taken part in Penthouse Arts Residency, Belgium including exhibition 'Lab: Gallery 20 {Furtive Tears}' at V2Vingt Brussels, Belgium. She is in preparation for her second solo exhibition at the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, October 2018.

McCann is the recipient of various Arts Council of Ireland awards, and residencies at Cemeti Arthouse, Indonesia; HIAP, International Artists' Residency, Cable Factory, Helsinki, Finland, URRA Artist Residency, Argentina, Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Ireland; and of Perspective and EV+A exhibition awards


Her work is represented in the collections; Irish Museum of Modern Art, the OPW, Limerick City Gallery, Swansea City Council, The London Institute, Hiscox Collection, London as well as multiple private collections.

See our gallery news for more details.

VOLTA NY is a contemporary art fair comprised of solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show, VOLTA NY has since its 2008 debut operated as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week.

Led by Amanda Coulson, VOLTA’s longtime Artistic Director, VOLTA NY showcases contemporary art positions in an approachable way accessible to younger art-lovers and seasoned collectors alike. By spotlighting artists through solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes their galleries’ exhibition styles “at home” while refocusing the fair-going experience back to its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.
