PARD MORRISON: “WARP AND WEFT”
Bright lines weave through and over each other, each line made of different colors, one giving way to the next: blue to yellow to red; red to pink to gray to violet. The effect is of a precarious balance between quietude and activity.
It is this meeting of diverse elements – woven together to make a whole — that forms the underlying theme to Morrison’s aptly named exhibition of new works, Warp and Weft. The tall slim aluminum pillar from which the exhibition has taken its name – white, lined horizontally and vertically by these stitched, colored lines, exemplifies a shift in visual language for Morrison; while the title itself also directly references the exploration of an entirely new medium for Morrison: painting on canvas.
