This is the third exhibition for Kathleen Morris at Box Gallery since 2005, but still one that the cognoscenti and the local art community would not want to miss.
Kathleen Morris' palette is generally dark, rich and earthy. Most of her work is figurative. Bodies (human and, occasionally animal-like) are sometimes fleshed-out, sometimes unrealized: figure as form, pulled out of the layers of medium. There is no ground, rarely the suggestion of horizon. Nothing feels quite solid. Dreams come to mind: day and night voyages. Places and actions are mysterious. Often nude, or partially nude, bodies fall or float in the murk, or rise from a black depth. Morris reveals timeless events. The view is inward.
The Box Gallery is located in the trendy Railyard district near SITE Santa Fe and is expansive and perfect for displaying contemporary art.
