Biography
Australian Artist Angela Morris-Winmill has an impressive diverse portfolio spanning painting, print making, sculpture and fashion art. Prior to transitioning in to the world of fine art Angela Morris-Winmill worked successfully as a fashion designer specialising in wedding dresses and designing for brands such as Topshop. 
 
Angela is well known across the London art scene as a regular exhibitor at Roy’s Art Fair and Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair. With numerous sell-out solo exhibitions under her belt, Angela was recently recognised as one of Artsper Magazines Top 10 Emerging Artists of 2020. She has been shortlisted for the RA Summer Exhibition and also exhibited at The Threadneedle Prize, Mall Galleries in the past. Often attracting impressive media attention for her work, including a recent article in the Huffington Post, her strong eye for colour and detail puts Angela Morris-Winmill in a class of her own. 
 
Growing up in the outback of Australia, Angela learned about the delicate relationship between humans and our environment from an early age. This awareness continues to influence her work to this day since migrating to the UK. 

In Angela's latest series she juxtaposes brightly coloured, screen prints of iconic London buildings against a genuine, antique map background to highlight how a city is timeless but ever-changing at the same time.

These unique hand pulled prints are embellished with gold leaf, filling in the wears and tears that come with a lifetime of use to guide the audience's eye towards the hidden beauty a historic map holds. The artist is inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where gold is used to fill-in and reassemble broken pottery. This process treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, ultimately making it more valuable and arguably more beautiful, rather than something to disguise.
