Themes of isolation and escapism are always prominent within the work of landscape painter Lucy Fiona Morrison. Lucy creates paintings that allow the viewer to be able to appreciate nature in its rawest form.
As urbanisation continues to increase and we are increasingly withdrawn from the natural landscape around us, Lucy’s paintings encourage the viewer to escape the modern chaos. Devoid of human figures and constructions; the viewer takes a solitary stance and is immersed into the landscape, captured by the fleeting moment of nature in an uninhabited view.
Compelled towards dramatic skies and the play of light and the space, the paintings are based on real locations. Lucy further states: “it’s about capturing aspects of the scene that move me and trying to convey that to the viewer by eliminating unsightly elements, and enhancing aspects like the weather conditions, to create heightened reality.”
Lucy Fiona Morrison is an oil painter with a reputation for the creation of dramatic, atmospheric and vivid views of the British landscape. Having grown up in West Yorkshire surrounded by the countryside, Lucy has always been inspired by the breadth of colours, aiming to bring this essence onto the canvas. After graduating from Norwich School of Art in 2010 with a BA Hons in Fine Art, she has pursued her passion for painting, working as a professional artist and painter. Having spent five years in Yorkshire after her degree, successfully exhibiting throughout the UK, she now continues her career in the south of England. Lucy’s paintings are held in private collections internationally.
