DESCRIPTION

In works of monumental presence and passion, Jim Morphesis gives paint free reign to move from allegory to insistent surface. An artist who has layers of cultural influence, geographical adaptation, and temporal persistence, Morphesis creates works which grab and hold the viewer in an unflinching examination of mortality.

All presentations take place Saturdays @ 4pm and include light refreshments, closing Q & A, and informal time to speak with the artist.
