Original painting in oil on canvas.
"A glimpse into the ordered chaos of a working harbour. Vivid highlights jump out from the mass of shapes and tones of this traditional working environment."
The paintings of Johnny Morant are beautifully conceived, figurative forms which generate a dream-like pliancy. The use of pastel, soporific colouring contrasted with deep flesh tones and warm shadows allude to a sensation of an encompassing light. The figure, whose gaze always eludes us, dissipates into the background releasing the form into new dimensions of space.
