Shaun Morris is a painter of landscapes, although he strives desperately to avoid all the connotations and associations that the tradition of landscape painting may conjure up. He doesn’t paint the seemingly picturesque; the bucolic countryside or the dramatic coast as, from his home in the urban sprawl of Birmingham and its surrounding areas, he doesn’t live anywhere near these places. He paints the Sainsbury’s car-park, the local bus stop or the disused telephone box. He may paint nature, but it’s the nature of the common edgelands and woods, or the nature found down by the canals or underneath the motorways and at the feet of the pylons that loom on the edge of the housing estates where he grew up. From his studio in Kings Heath he creates colourful and atmospheric paintings and prints of the local landscape, often inspired by his frequent night walks. He has exhibited extensively in the region and beyond and was recently seen as a contestant on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year.
