Jennifer Morrison Order and Chaos and the Spaces in Between

“I am fascinated by the intersection of order and chaos and the spaces in between,” says Jennifer Morrison, and indeed it is clear that her work is directed toward investigating that intersection. Working in oil paint, she creates vibrantly colored images that balance a free-flowing sense of motion and energy with a rigorous sense of clarity. Multi-hued lines swirl around and through each other, while repeated shapes form a mosaic whose parts seem to dance before the viewer. But that motion and energy are always precisely rendered on the canvas, giving each image a solid underpinning.

Morrison says that her color palette finds its inspiration in the environment of her native South Africa. Her paintings take the colors of nature and incorporate them into patterns that bring the motifs of modern abstract painting to mind. Yet they also stay true to the outlines found in the natural world, abstracting them into a form that is at once formal and organic. For the last two decades, Morrison has lived and worked in London.

About the Exhibition
Agora Gallery, NYC is delighted to present two exhibitions that contain the joy and zest of spring, giving viewers a feeling of optimism, energy and hope. In Sensorial Perspectives viewers can appreciate the elegant, intricate approach that leads to works that are both engaging and visually stunning. Careful observation grounds every piece, demonstrating the power that a real connection to the world and its mysteries has in the creative process, but each artist brings their own unique perspective and magic to their work, with dazzling consequences. The Essence of Abstraction provides a feast for the eyes, presenting the work of artists who allow their glowing inner conviction and inspiring sense of reality and its fully dynamic nature to spill out into their works, animating and enlivening each piece. The result is art that stirs the imagination and touches the heart.
The exhibitions open on March 2, 2013 and continue until March 22, 2013, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday, March 14, at 6-8 pm. Art lovers are enthusiastically encouraged to attend and meet some of the talented artists who created the memorable and moving works on display.
