Megan Wheatley

Megan’s work follows in the footsteps of the abstract expressionists, in the sense that she paints to leave a piece of her unconscious in every painting. She does this by painting on a large, human-like scale and uses gestural mark making and written word to express her emotions and thoughts. Megan’s paintings are an insight into her mind, and she strives to feel completely truthful and connected to her work. Her work is about releasing and capturing emotion and the process of making the work is more important than the viewer understanding Megan. She is interested in the interplay

between colours and how our own life experiences can create memories that are held in our sensory perceptions of colour. Using colour as a way of expressing memories, thoughts and feelings. Her work is a continuing practice that allows her to develop and grow without restrictions.
