Sarah McRae Morton

Sarah McRae Morton grew up in rural Lancaster County Pennsylvania, where she still keeps a hayloft studio above the horse stalls in her family’s barn. Sarah attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania. She received a travel fellowship to study chemical composition of paintings in Rome.  She studied with Odd Nerdrum in Norway. Sarah received a Mattisse Foundation fellowship for her work on the local history of West Virginia, and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been exhibited across the country, including at the Vermont Studio Center. She currently lives and paints in Cologne, Germany.

"There is a story behind each painting. Coincidence and unlikelihood are reoccurring themes. They are tales of people long gone but for residue of their genes in me, a few artifacts like roses they rooted, furniture they tempered, their own graphite scrawl, or silver gelatin shadows. The flickering of restless spirits conducted my curiosity to collected stories around campfires, under moth eaten black skies, from the granite toothed mouths of cemeteries, and talking walls of the rock rubble of old homesteads. Some stories were transmitted over generations, between rocking chairs on Appalachian porches- stages to audiences of acres thick with ghosts. The subjects are drawn from my heritage- that of my family, and of my artistic lineage. I have knotted the two histories using conventions of picture making unique to the era of each person to whom I owe a painting as a thanks for my chances and their gusts of curiosity."
