High Seas, Heavy Horses
Sarah McRae Morton’s paintings are woven with stories from her familial heritage, folklore, and historic curiosities. Her often surreal oil paintings blend reality with mystery or fantasy, and highlight her mastery of paint. Figures appear blurred as if in motion without losing any integrity of form or clarity. Subjects are pulled from centuries past, or are transported to landscapes and interiors that represent another era. McRae Morton’s skill as a painter and ability to convey narrative and emotion allow viewers to be swept up in the moments she creates.
