Merv Moriarty has spent a lifetime committed to art and its teaching. Born in 1937 in northern NSW Moriarty's work is represented in prominent Australian and international collections including the Queensland and New South Wales Art Galleries. Moriarty has been a major prize winner and finalist and his career has spanned traditional realism through to abstract art and powerful figurative works. This figurative style, which focuses on the human body, has led to an ever-growing imposing and even confrontational body of work which continues to inspire comment and recognition.
