04/09 Andrew Morrow – Visual Artist
In his professional art practice, Andrew Morrow has placed an emphasis on the painted medium, creating some of the most complex figurative paintings in contemporary art today. Drawing upon the tradition of history painting, Morrow’s large apocalyptic works negotiate the fragmentation of contemporary experience, masculinity, and sexuality. He brings faultless technique to the rendering of his images, and his signature manipulation of scale is apparent in his sometime epic works, the backgrounds replete with figures in miniature. Since parts of his paintings remain intentionally unfinished, Morrow keeps the chaotic atmosphere in suspension and the imaginations of his viewers captivated.
Morrow has exhibited widely throughout Canada, including the Sudbury Art Gallery; the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto; the McMaster Museum of Art, the New Brunswick Museum, Saint John; and the Edmonton Art Gallery. His work is in many private and public collections, including the Royal Norwegian collection; Kingston City Hall; City of Ottawa Art Collection; and the St. Regis Hotel, San Francisco.
