Welcome to my Galleries
'Neist Point 2'
Maureen Harrison was born in Burnley, Lancashire and studied Fine Art at Sheffield School of Art.
'After graduation I worked painting scenery for different TV and Theatre productions. A number of other unrelated jobs and a family commitments followed during which time I continued to exhibit with various groups around London and the North of England. I have been involved with Crouch End Open Studios for many years.
To illustrate the urban landscape in decline, I choose strong forms in order to capture the drama of those spaces no longer needed, nor used as originally intended. Abandoned places have always interested me, with their mood of reflective romance. Even subjects perhaps considered mundane, when seen in our ever changing seasonal light, reveal a certain beauty not necessarily expected in modern cityscapes. The atmosphere of a piece is equally as important to me as the depiction of the subject.'
As you will see, my website is organised into different galleries by topic. If you are interested in viewing a painting in any of the galleries outside of exhibition times, please call or click click here to email me for an appointment, contact details below.
