Fat Art – Angela Morgan


Most of Angela Morgan’s art is not specifically “fat art”, but her paintings of women do include women (and girls) of differing sizes, so there are some gems to be found for my collection.

Angela Morgan’s work celebrates humanity through the use of colour, pattern and line.

Her human figures express the poses of life; the jubilation of dance, the contemplation of parenthood, and the melancholy of summer’s end. Colours fuse and meld to achive gesture; transforming abstract images into living moments.

I was surprised to learn that Morgan works in oils.  I had always though she was using water colors – but that just shows how little I know!  Also, according to her website, she only sells originals – no prints.  So anyone owning a piece of her artwork, truly has a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

I find her paintings have a distinctly female vibe, and not just because her subjects are women.  Her paintings of groups show the comradery of women being together.  Her single subjects are more contemplative, and have a feeling of loneliness.

Also Morgan’s groups of women often include a diversity in size and shape which is something I always appreciate.  Our lives are full of diversity and I like art that reflects this.
