Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle

Annie Morris Stacked

September 17 – October 21, 2015

Opening reception 9.17.15 6-8pm

Internationally acclaimed, London based artist Annie Morris will have her first solo show with Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle. The artist will be in attendance for the reception.   Morris’ sculptures are towers shaped from plaster; sand, and painted with raw pigment to resemble a three-dimensional artist’s palate. Inspired by her strength from personal struggles, Morris chooses to focus on the hopefulness and vibrancy of life. The seemingly weightless forms are a metaphor for pure joy and the ability to conquer the impossible. Each layer of her towers teeters over the other, threatening to fall, yet gently supporting each other’s balance.   Since completing her degree from École des Beaux-Arts Paris, Morris has exhibited at The Royal Academy, London; Baku MoMA, Azerbaijan and The New Art Gallery, Walsall and Tate Gallery, St Ives.

For the first time, Morris has taken her sculptural exploration into the medium of bronze. Her hopefulness and ability to question what we consider to be constant rules, is pushed further by the use of metal. Her sculptures create movement upwards, each part floating upon the next, while solidly connected by their substance.

In her Face painting series, Morris again demonstrates her mastery of fluidity and ability to encapsulate the sense of eortlessness in abstract form.  Morris builds her canvases by layering planes of figures, creating a greater whole, rather than a group of individuals. Each face is drawn and overdrawn, emerging from the gestural and fluid composition, creating a new layer and sense of connectedness with the viewer.
