Solo Show – Paul Morrison
26 November 1999 — 15 January 2000
Paul Morrison has recently gained wide recognition for his distinctive monochrome paintings and wall paintings. Typically, these take the form of highly stylised landscapes which incorporate scaled-up details of flowers, ferns and other naturalistic components which range from generic cartoon type features to complex botanically specific renditions of plants architecture. These elements are fused together in Morrison's work resulting in fictional but accurately depicted scenes on to which the viewer can project his or her own associative colour.
The exhibition will include four large and medium size works on canvas and a 360 degrees wall painting.
Born in 1966, Paul Morrison studied at Goldsmiths College of Art, London. Following the success of Morrison's wall painting 'Ley' at the ICA, London, the artist has exhibited on an international level including The Drawing Center, New York; Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama; MUHKA, Antwerp and Inverleith House, Edinburgh. Forthcoming shows include "Colour me Blind!", Wurttembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart and the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge (MA).
