B. Cork, Ireland.
Morgan Doyle is an Irish printmaker and painter, currently based in London. He graduated from the Crawford College of Art and Design in 1990 and went on to complete his MA (Fine Art Printmaking) at Chelsea College of Art and Design, London (1991). He has lived and worked in London since then.
The artist says of his work: “I am a passionately dedicated full-time artist, currently working chiefly in printmaking, but making time also for both painting and drawing. Like all artists my work has a certain style, perhaps structured abstract, but I find that this is perpetually evolving."
Doyle’s works are made using the techniques of woodcut, etching and several other printmaking media, often in combination, akin to making a collaged landscape. A piece of work may start with a woodcut of a landscape as a first layer, and this may be followed by an etching on top, adding to the feeling of depth, producing utterly different effects, and allowing the work to evolve, to a ‘finished’ state. His work is nearly all based on the memories of places he has seen, placing them directly on to the plate; with the first mark, the work is begun.
His work can be seen in collections in the UK and Ireland, including Courtauld Institute, London, East Wing Collection; The President of Ireland Collection; University College Cork; National Micro Electronics, Cork; Butler Gallery Collection, Kilkenny; Prudential PLC, London; British Airports Authority, London and Laurence Graham, London.
