Moorhouse is a contemporary painter who expresses her fascination with the ‘found object’ through her love of painting. These collected and documented objects have been discarded and exposed to the elements and no longer function as intended. Moorhouse says,

“The patina of the reclamation process of nature leaves intricate and unique markings upon a variety of surfaces and materials to create an aesthetic value that draws me to these objects and ultimately the process of art making.”

Expectations is an exhibition that combines some of Moorhouse’s earlier work with new pieces that have been completed since graduating from studies. Moorhouse says,

“The title refers to the many expectations that we all face as we strive to achieve our individual goals, but it also refers to the expectations we as an audience have of an artwork and the way it functions.”
