Since the beginning, we have always had more painters among the Academicians than any other discipline. Today, over 30 RAs are painters, including Michael Craig-Martin, Tess Jaray, Barbara Rae and Jenny Saville.
Mali Morris RA
Mali Morris was born in North Wales and studied Fine Art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, BA (1963-68) and the University of Reading, MFA (1968–1970).
Her concentrated compositions engage the viewer in the contemplation of pure abstraction, in which colour relationships structure a luminosity that emanates, creating complex layers of space. They explore the language of painting, and its ever-changing expressive possibilities.
I think the beauty and excitement of painting is its potential to present a world for the viewer to inhabit, without instructions as to how to negotiate and understand it.
