“The sea always filled her with longing, though for what she was never sure.” ― Cornelia Funke, Inkheart
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.
