Morrison Art

Meet the Maker

The Morrison Art Gallery

On Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th May. The Morrison Art Gallery displayed their work at the cliffs. Meeting and greeting visitors.

Phillip has a Morrison art gallery in the popular seaside town of Lahinch, with a second gallery in Doolin. His work celebrates the culture and landscape of Ireland and is often described as having a musicality to it. Strong colours and movement are key signatures to his unique style of painting, but the artist attempts to push his work in new directions through experimentation to help his art practice evolve.

Morrison works concentrates on streetscapes and surf scenes from the west of Ireland. Strong shapes and colour are key signatures of work which help to create interesting compositions and a sense of movement. Another unique feature would be treatment of the sky, often the sky in a painting has no physical relationship with the landscape below it.
