Morgan Irons

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Morgan Irons

United States

B., 1991. Irons works predominantly in the medium of painting. 

Primarily a self taught painter, Morgan Irons began studying painting in 2015 following her move to a rural piece of land in Montana. It was then she began studying the work of master painters and has since sought out workshops with some of the top representational painters today. A figurative painter by nature, Irons believes in painting solely what she knows best, life on the land she lives. Her paintings are narrative and timeless in theme and palette.

“I find Morgan to not only have highly developed technical painting abilities, but a burning desire to have her work represent something more than an image...she understands that true Art becomes something more than itself. When I view her work I am inspired to THINK about it, to explore and ponder what poets refer to as “the Great Thoughts”. This is as Art should be, not just clever beautiful images, but reflections upon the human condition and culture. Morgan Irons is a true artist.” -Michael Ome Untiedt

Morgan Irons has been a featured artist in Fine Art Connoisseur's "Artists to Watch", Southwest Art Magazine’s “21 Under 31: Young Artists to Watch in 2017”, and Big Sky Journal's "Ones to Watch".
