Sarah Christine Morrison
I am inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds me living in New England as well as by the unique landscapes, art, literature and cultures of the places where I have lived, worked, and traveled—from Virginia to Montana, Italy to West Africa. My technique involves experimenting with multiple layers of colors, textures, shapes and marks created playfully and organically, embracing the unexpected, unintentional ‘mistakes’ inherent to the art-making process. My artwork is informed by professional experiences as a social worker focused on the overlapping issues of poverty, health and housing as well as by personal experiences as a woman, wife and mother in a constantly changing world affected by climate change and riddled with social injustice. Simultaneously, my work is a celebration of and meditation on the life events we share, from the mundane to the ethereal.
