Devonport Regional Gallery presents Preservation and Loss, a solo exhibition by Tasmanian artist Anne Morrison from 6 February to 13 March, featuring a selection of new paintings and works on paper.
Morrison has developed a reputation as one of Australia’s finest painters. This exhibition will highlight influences and shifts in the artist’s practice and feature a series of works on paper that are studies for her large paintings. The work of Morrison explores the delicately interconnected worlds of surrounding micro and macro environments. The included paintings play with ambiguous and transitory landscapes and uncover patterns and rhythms of the natural world.
“I am interested in sites where continual shifts can be observed, places that are not fixed or static, but fluid, porous and in constant material exchange. In these spaces, through movement of water and the residues and detritus washed ashore, I find a tangle of information meshed together into a fabric that is everything we are – material and immaterial, near and far, organic and synthetic, stable and spiralling out of control.” – Anne Morrison, Glover Prize 2015.
Anne Morrison was born in Glasgow, Scotland and now lives in Forth, Tasmania. She is represented in Australia by Despard Gallery, Hobart.
This exhibition opens on Friday 5 February at 6 pm.
