Paintings by Kathleen Morris

Working in oil with cold wax on linen, Kathleen Morris’ new works range in scale from 12” to a grand 84”. As in most of the work of her career so far, her images are figurative, or suggestive of the figure, mostly human and sometimes other species. The palette is earthy; the surface is complex, highly textured.

In the exquisite small work, To War No More (12”x12”), a young face of uncertain gender appears beneath a gray and black up-swept volume, what could be a helmet or turban, weary eyes gazing in our direction. The operatic Silent Spring (84” x 64”), with one, perhaps two, avian figures, is mysterious and sumptuous.
