Collection: Jennifer Morrison

Born in South Africa in 1971, Morrison studied both there and in London, where she graduated from Central Saint Martins. She has had solo shows in Johannesburg, Durban and London and been in group exhibitions in New York, London and Johannesburg. She is currently represented by Graham Modern & Contemporary in Johannesburg and Bernard Gallery in Cape Town. She is represented in private and corporate collections in London, Singapore, South Africa, Australia and the United States. Morrison lives and works in London.

In this series of paintings, Morrison uses the formal qualities of colour and composition to allude to something experienced in the world and in oneself. She has tried to create a space within these works, where you are aware of an unfolding as the final marks sit on top of a series of previous marks. The artist wanted to create a sense of a past; of something which lies behind that which is seen and felt in the present. For her, painting is about expression. It is about capturing an interior world and a personal response to the world around her. It’s about having faith in not knowing. It is about what is unspoken. Morrison is interested in the literalness of painting. Subject matter, for her, is the least interesting aspect of art. She is far more interested in how a painting is put together; in its visual impact. Paintings are there to be experienced. These paintings are about entanglement, hope and struggle. They are about trying to capture a moment, a memory, an emotional state which is in a state of flux, as all things are. Morrison sees her paintings as arrangements which try to evoke and describe states of chaos, struggle and aggression alongside those of rest and beauty.
