Meaghan currently lives in Toronto and is working as a full-time artist. Her newest series, Symbiosis focuses on the essential purpose of an ecological civilization to remind us of what is at stake and what we need to protect. She moulds her subject within landscapes to represent the coexistence between man and nature. Through this work, she hopes to bring awareness to the critical state of the environment and support the ongoing efforts of many who work to preserve it.
Her underwater series has been well received having won numerous awards. Her father’s degenerative neurological disorder Multiple Systems Atrophy propelled her to shoot underwater, where she beautifully expresses moments of weightlessness. The focus in this work explores the underwater movement of the human body and all of its expressions – free of gravity, restrictions and weight. The subjects are open to express movement freely with minimal direction. These images are symbolic of the struggle of her father’s disease and celebrate a positive, therapeutic interpretation of the freedom of mobility.
Meaghan’s work will be featured at ‘Beneath The Ocean Floor’ – Art Show on Friday March 8th, 2013 in Toronto.
