  • Biography

    Paintings that transform spaces through calm, colour and energy.

    I have always had a fascination with the transient nature of water and its ability to take many forms whether it be a formed yet formless cloud or a flowing river. With my paintings, I hope to manifest the appeal of water's uniqueness through a variety of ‘scapes’ depicting man-made and natural worlds.  Representing water through paint and process is an ongoing theme. 

    I love to play and work with colour, different materials and processes.  I am never happier than when I am in my  studio exploring the canvas and seeing where my art takes me. 

    "Lyra Morgan’s paintings evoke the calmness and energy she feels when she creates them, transforming the spaces we live in.  Her work is influenced by her interpretation of the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi and a love of the positive outcomes of serendipity.  Many Japanese philosophies embrace living in the moment and accepting 'the flow' and it is these concepts that influence her practice the most".

Biography

Paintings that transform spaces through calm, colour and energy.

I have always had a fascination with the transient nature of water and its ability to take many forms whether it be a formed yet formless cloud or a flowing river. With my paintings, I hope to manifest the appeal of water's uniqueness through a variety of ‘scapes’ depicting man-made and natural worlds.  Representing water through paint and process is an ongoing theme. 

I love to play and work with colour, different materials and processes.  I am never happier than when I am in my  studio exploring the canvas and seeing where my art takes me. 

"Lyra Morgan’s paintings evoke the calmness and energy she feels when she creates them, transforming the spaces we live in.  Her work is influenced by her interpretation of the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi and a love of the positive outcomes of serendipity.  Many Japanese philosophies embrace living in the moment and accepting 'the flow' and it is these concepts that influence her practice the most".
