Currently exhibiting is Melbourne artist, Jay Morgan, who paints using acrylics and oils on canvas. His work ranges from abstract landscapes to figurative works with influences taken from artists such as Bruno Leti, Brett Whiteley, Fred Williams, John Waller, and Ben Quilty. The artist has employed acrylic underwork with an oil glaze for the landscape pieces, creating a luminous finish to these interesting and beautiful paintings.
