Simon Morris

5 November - 2 December 2017
Opening: Saturday 5th of November16.00 -18.00 hrs.

Simon Morris presents work for the first time in Amsterdam bringing two works together, a painting A Whole and Two Halves (Yellow Ochre), and a wall drawing Walking Drawing, Amsterdam. Gravity is an essential part of Morris' process, dispersing pigment over time, creating edge and shape. The wall drawing Walking Drawing Amsterdam explores Morris’s interest in the relationship between painting and architecture. Painting directly on to the walls of the gallery, Morris uses reduction and repetition as a way of simplifying things, while bringing the spatial qualities of light, time and space of painting into focus.

Morris is in Amsterdam after completing a three-month residency at Headlands Centre for the Arts just north of San Francisco.
