Peg Morris                             

 

Peg Morris is a painter and printmaker whose work focuses on significant forms, patterns and colour combinations in natural and urban landscapes.  A common thread linking much of her work is decay.  Inspiration might come from a weather beaten, decomposing tree stump, a track worn into the landscape by generations of feet, the crumbling and erosion of landscapes or the peeling paint on a neglected building.  Peg finds that the process of etching lends itself to representing these themes as the plate is itself eroded by the acid, scraped and polished, scratched and sometimes cut into fragments.  She has recently begun to use collagraphs to explore texture and colour in a looser and more direct medium.
