John Morris

Irish artist John Morris was born in Dublin in 1958. He started painting in 1997. Although primarily a self taught artist John Morris did initially take painting lessons from Irish artists Brian Quinn and Trevor Geoghegan. John Morris says: 'As an artist my paintings are about light and the effect light has on subjects such as figures, water and landscapes. Composition is important to me and I spend a lot of time getting it right before I start on a painting. I make quick sketches in pencil, charcoal or oil. These sketches along with photographs make up a visual diary which I use as reference material for my paintings. John Morris is an artist with a strong love for the Irish landscape with its constantly changing light and atmosphere. His paintings display vitality and freshness which when coupled with strong and confident brush strokes successfully captures a sense of time and place. John Morris is an Irish artist who excels at plein-air painting and knowing how to capture glistening Irish light. Morris' paintings convey his compositional ability, an essential quality for rapid outdoor painting
