Lauren Morris - Painter
Art is my imagination. It is always an expression of something; whether an idea, image or feeling. I strive for a simplicity within my work while being unique. I enjoy working with colors, reflections, shadows and light.
I paint predominantly in acrylics, wanting to fill my canvas with movement and light, making the viewer see beyond the colors on the canvas. I moved to Vancouver from South Africa and was thrown into a world full of challenges: my art and my senses merged. Making art for me is like exploring a new country for the first time. The bold bright colors of tulips inspired me to do a series of still lives in which I experimented with different brush stokes striving to create my own unique style. My recent works have taken on a new direction of abstraction, filled with the rich colors of the earth and inspired by the shapes and drama of fall, done in mixed media.
As an artist I am hoping to inspire thought and to evoke the viewers’ emotions through visual imagery.
