Born in Adare, Co. Limerick in 1952, Henry Morgan studied at the Limerick School of Art and was awarded a scholarship to Oslo University. Since his return to Ireland, having completed a BA in Fine Art, he has exhibited extensively both at home and abroad and has been a regular exhibitor at the Irish Exhibition of Living Art, The Royal Hibernian Academy, EVA in Limerick, among many others.
A contemporary artist of substance, his work is now included in many public and private collections.?This Exhibition of Burren paintings has been a journey of discovery , inspiration ,enlightenment, experimentation and fulfillment. Inspired by the vast flat plains of limestone punctured by grykes and dressed occasionally by its vegetation, Morgan is striving to capture the essence, the visual poetry, the presence of the place.
Henry Morgan describes himself as “a traditionalist”. But when you linger and gaze on his amazing works you find yourself transported to the verge of surrealism, where landscape and scenery define your very identity.What you do recognise in his interpretation is not only the familiar landscape, but your own connection to it.
