Melaugh's work is a collective exploration of traumatic events which have taken place throughout history. References to her grandfather’s experiences of being in the army during World War Two are present throughout her work in the form of numbers, dates and descriptions.  Unsettling images of a Magdalene laundry in ‘Tuam,’ and the eerie aftermath of a chemical disaster in the painting ‘Bhopal,’ are also part of the collective disturbed reality which is explored.
