Loukas Morley 2016
JAN 15TH- MARCH 17TH, 2016
Morley presents a series of sensual and often romantic encounters with material. His palette includes wood, resin, paint, paper, found objects, cloth and furniture, with each element becoming a note in a precisely constructed score that is both disciplined and playful. His paintings are built up over time through pouring, rubbing, sanding, waiting, and watching.
The process of making a painting is laid bare, fromthe perfectly built wooden structure on which the paint sits, to the edges that reveal the drips. Each stage in the making process is a physical act of movement and a balance between control and spontaneity, each layer of seductively glossy resin capturing a moment of possibility in which the fluidity of the paint is held static.
