Saoirse Morgan

MA Fine Art

My paintings explore familiar landscapes and my connection to them. The subject of my work is my home terrain of West Wales: the coast, its ecology, plant life, and weather. Sketching out on location is an important part of my practice. In the studio, I allow space for exploration of materials, for chance developments and abstraction, allowing the painting to be pulled in its own direction. The work develops according to its own trajectory, while staying rooted in my own experience and in my connection with the Welsh landscape.
