Paint what you really see, not what you think you ought to see; not the object isolated as in a test tube, but the object enveloped in sunlight and atmosphere, with the blue dome of heaven reflected in the shadows.

-Claude Monet

About

Morgan Allender is an contemporary painter based in the Adelaide Hills,  South Australia. Profiled by Vogue Living Magazine (“Next Generation”, September 2013) as “one of today’s brightest crop of design and art talent", she works primarily within a framework of large-scale, gestural paintings. 

 

Her work reflects an ongoing exploration of the parallels between the materiality of oil paint and the chaotic elements of the natural world.  Drawing on a multitude of sources, including botanical symbolism, ecology, talismans, herbalism, and the landscape genre, she is most interested in the spiritual and psychological interaction between people and plants, as well as long-standing gender associations with women, flowers and plant magic.
