Moran received her MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design and her BFA in painting and BA in cinema from Binghamton University. Moran’s paintings intuitively explore the history of girls and women from the corporeal, environmental, and psychological perspectives.
Recent solo exhibitions include Ruin at Fahm Hall Gallery in Savannah, GA and Evocation at Atelier Gallery in Charleston, SC. Recent group shows include Between Clock and Bed at Yale Divinity School in New Haven, CT. Moran lives and works in Charleston, SC where she teaches at the College of Charleston.
The exhibition, Mirror, speaks to the tension inherent in familial relationships, but also between the viewer and their perceptions of the work. Each painting conveys an aspect of the feminine psyche: mother, queen, warrior, lover, seeker, and more. The result is a continued dialogue between the corporeal body we inhabit, and the soul that inhabits us.
