Annie Morris

September 16, 2021 - February 5, 2022

YSP curates the first UK solo museum show of tapestry works and sculpture by London-based artist Annie Morris. Made specifically for this exhibition, The Weston Gallery will feature Morris’s iconic pigment sculptures alongside ‘thread paintings’, both referencing the history of art as well as the artist’s personal experience of grief. The sculptures are precariously balanced towers of pigmented lumpen spheres. Formed by hand in plaster and sand and cast in bronze, the spherical forms are painted with hand-sourced, raw pigments in vivid hues such as Ultramarine, Viridian and Ochre; colour that is so bound into the form that it seems to become the material of the sculpture. The Stacks convey both instability and bold defiance. Morris’s drawing and tapestry combine personal ciphers with mark-making and grid-like structures that sit between abstraction and figuration, creating a singular intimacy.
