About Maureen

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 over 10 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. In this show I have concentrated on that particular point in time when a place becomes largely deserted, provoking questions which provide the narrative. Contrasting with these are lighter moments animated by the city’s occupants, both 2 and 4 legged inhabiting certain scenes.'

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 email me for an appointment, contact details below.
