Colin McMorran was born in Ormskirk, Lancashire, in 1962 and still lives and works in the region. He paints contemporary abstracts and seascapes in acrylics. Having been a keen artist at an early age he then carved out a career in IT, but in recent years has fallen back to his original passion and has started to paint again – with a vengeance.
In the two years since his artistic ‘rebirth’ he has successfully sold a mixture of abstract, semi-abstract and fine art works throughout the UK and Europe.
His current ‘infinity series’ abstracts develop upon a theme questioning our place as humans in this universe and incorporate his calligraphy skills to add poignancy.
“I am fascinated by the ongoing discoveries in the world of quantum physics and how these very smallest of components of our universe can help in our understanding of the very largest: the Sun, stars, galaxies and supernovae. And how this new knowledge has changed the way we look upon the Universe”.
Colin likes to contrast these overtly abstract works with his ongoing love of painting the power, majesty and natural forces of nature in his seascapes.
He has exhibited at Preston City’s Gallery of Contemporary Art ‘room 107’and is currently exhibiting at ‘Gallery Nine’ in Bloomsbury, London.
