Melinda Morrison


E. Melinda Morrison is a story teller. Her stories are of diverse people and places with long histories and uncertain futures, and she tells it all in the language of oils and light and composition. Although her paintings have their foundation in the quotidian of daily events and experiences, she enhances and enlarges those slices of life and paints what she wants to see with a certain looseness and abstraction in shapes. Her colors are carefully paired with grays – never “color for color-sake,” rather color for the sake of the narrative. In her own words, she “enjoys telling the story” and revels in framing a climactic scene: “whether a humorous or an emotional moment, capturing a person in spontaneous expression is the ultimate glory for me in painting.”
