Megan Menzies, b. 1995 is a London based artist, currently enrolled on the Painting MA at the Royal College of Art. She is a recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant (2021). After completing a BA in History of Art at the University of Bristol, Megan lived in Poland for a year, where she began to paint again. In her work, Megan is searching for an element of the sublime within the ordinary, finding inspiration in people and spaces that might normally go unnoticed. Stories, conversations and personal experiences feed her ideas and she collects them as research. Through her paintings, Megan reflects on how that research combines with her memory, imagination and feeling allowing her to discover and develop narratives. She seeks to capture heavy moments, where time thickens and small details are valued and intensified.
