Paul Anderson Morrow

 A Sense of Time and Place

Paul Morrow’s approach in part is informed by being the son of a carpenter.

Paul starts each painting by constructing the boards on which he paints. Here the qualities of the wood are both fully realised, honoured and become part of the process of the painting. This ritualistic approach to the construction of the boards and the inherent qualities of the wood are fully included into the processes that inform the paintings.

Paul Morrow’s approach to painting is anchored in the moment and the immediacy of the gesture. The pieces explore both notions of time and place, capturing these as a biographical record through the medium of paint.  The formative stage of the pieces are developed as reference to a sense of place, no preparatory work is undertaken. The work calls on fragments of memory; shapes, colours and forms are generated through a series of gestures that can be considered automatic and visceral in nature. The marks are applied and then considered, an intervention is then made to keep or remove the marks. The painting doesn’t have a fixed destination, rather a direction whose trajectory is revealed through these interventions, charting time just as a diary does.    

The compositions unfold over a period of time through this process of excavation; in a manner that could be described as an intuitive, a dialectical conversation mediated by paint.
