ARTIST STATEMENT

I devolved over the years from early portrait and figure work to eventually being very focused on composition - arranging simple, bold shapes void of subject and context within a limited palette. When occasional "entities" began popping up in my paintings I initially rejected them - returning to anything representational felt like going backwards.

 

But they kept wanting to come through. They've been referred to as souls, creatures, beings and aliens. I like how they seem to commune and communicate with each other and with us from environments that seem both foreign and familiar, primitive and projected. There's a Welsh word that I really like: Hiraeth n. (Welsh) A spiritual longing for a home which maybe never was. Nostalgia for ancient places to which we cannot return. It is the echo of the lost places of our soul's past and our grief for them. It is in the wind, and the rocks, and the waves. It is nowhere and it is everywhere.

I began art school at Boston University before transferring to Parsons School of Design as an illustration major later continuing studies at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.  After careers in textile design, interior design and children's books (meighanmorrison.com) I returned to painting which for me is both a release from the exponential convolution that is today's world and a small rebellion against it.

It is a pleasure to be able to continue in the artistic tradition of both my great, great grandfather Edmund Garrett, illustrator, painter and mentor of American Impressionist painter Childe Hassam (Edmund Garrett's work is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and many other renowned institutions) and my great grandmother, award winning sculptor Clara Pfeifer Garrett  whose work was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and widely exhibited at the Salon, Champs Elysees, Paris, The Royal Academy, London and beyond.

Meighan Morrison's paintings are part of private collections around the world including notable political figures and distinguished members of the entertainment, sports and fashion industries.
