Ann Morton Exhibition
August 5 @ 10:00 am - August 27 @ 4:00 pm
Finding elements that make me want to grab my paintbrush has been a life long
obsession. I see beauty from the natural world all around me, however, when it comes
to the man-made objects in my paintings, I have always found it much harder to come
across the textures, colours and forms that can make a composition sing. I would often go
back to the handmade lace and tarnished silver to express a closer human connection.
Greg Daly’s ceramics!
I added a couple of gem-like blue and green pots to my painting collection some 30
years ago, and they have glowed in the shadows or shouted in the foreground of many
of my paintings throughout the years.
It is wonderful working with Greg’s landscape-inspired ceramics and yet challenging to
capture the earthy textures and subtleties.
Greg’s ceramics meld with the generally home grown and perfectly flawed fruit and
flowers in my paintings, to create beauty and intricacies that intrigue and draw the
observer into the painting.
