Debut Contemporary is pleased to announce the launch of a solo exhibition by South African-born British based artist, Jennifer Morrison. Morrison’s work deals predominantly with colour and shape. She uses these elements to explore juxtaposition, repetition, movement and rhythm. Although she has lived in London for two decades, the colours of South Africa have never left her and remain a central influence in her work.
Born in Durban, South Africa, Morrison initially studied art at Natal Technikon and then left to pursue her studies in London where she attended the Chelsea College of Art and Design and graduated from Central Saint Martins.
Morrison has exhibited in group shows in London and New York and at various corporate venues. She has had solo exhibitions at the Arndean Gallery, the Coningsby Gallery in London and recently has had a major show at Graham’s Fine Art Gallery in Johannesburg. Her work is in private collections in South Africa, Singapore and London.
Morrison has always been more interested in colour and shape and materials than in social or political or personal commentary or content. She likes the way that abstraction allows for ambiguity. She doesn’t need or want definitive answers or didactic explanations. Morrison prefers meaning, if it is found at all, to be open. Her work is subjectively driven and is guided largely by intuition.
The private view will take place on Wednesday 17th June and is open for RSVPs only. To secure your place in the guest list, please email RSVP@debutcontemporary.com.
