Australian artist Angela Morris-Winmill has an impressive diverse portfolio spanning painting, print making, sculpture and fashion art. Prior to transitioning in to the world of fine art Angela Morris-Winmill worked successfully as a fashion designer specialising in wedding dresses and designing for brands such as Topshop.
Angela is well known across the art scenes with numerous sell-out solo exhibitions under her belt, Angela was recently recognised as one of Artsper Magazines Top 10 Emerging Artists of 2020. She has been shortlisted for the RA Summer Exhibition, exhibited at The Threadneedle Prize, Mall Galleries and was most recently featured in the Huffington Post.
The skull series is heavily influenced by the Pop Art Movement, working in a deliberately limited palette to create powerful, striking imagery in her own signature style. Using organically sourced skulls, Angela juxtaposes sinister elements of the natural world with radiant colour, creating sensual and provocative artwork.
In Angela's map series she juxtaposes bold screen prints of iconic buildings against a genuine, antique map background to highlight how a city is timeless but ever-changing at the same time. Inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi, these unique hand pulled prints are then embellished with gold leaf, filling in the wears and tears that come with a lifetime of use to guide the audience's eye towards the hidden beauty a historic map holds.
