About

Shop Banner

I am interested in opposites, how they meet and determine each other - black/white, rough/smooth, pain/joy. I paint on linen or paper laid out onto the floor which adds a physicality and spontaneity, often foiling any plan. The large scale of my stretched paintings seek to amplify the relief found in simplification and the basic nature of materials speak to the essential. I paint as a panacea for the exponential convolution that is modern life. Or as rebellion against it. On a good day I manage to do both.

I studied at Boston University before attending Parsons School of Design as an illustration major. After careers in textile design, interior design and children's books (meighanmorrison.com) I returned to painting, continuing studies at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

I am happy to be continuing the artistic tradition of 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 other distinctive institutions.

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