Paintings an exhibition by Christine Morrow will feature at Metro Arts between 27 March and 13 April.

Paintings, Metro Arts, Christine Morrow


Christine Morrow produces multi-part painted configurations out of canvases that fasten together by means of zippers. Each component is a monochrome canvas in the tradition of reductive painting (Formalism and Minimalism). But the accumulative work exploits the material qualities of the painter's canvas and stretcher frame to create dynamic, three-dimensional modular structures.

Morrow's theoretical concern is with the history of painting in the West after the late 19th Century. Throughout Modernism, painting has reinstated a relationship of mutuality with the gallery wall by cultivating flatness and seriality, thereby internalising the conditions of the wall on which it is shown. Morrow carves a new space for reductive painting that embraces both acceptance and denial of gallery walls as painting's architectural support and its symbolic condition or governing logic.
