The exhibition at AVA features bodies of work from 2012 through 2015 by Joan Morris. Her metal-printed works will be one of several bodies of work featured, investigating the space between objects and surfaces. Morris says: “Apparition-like copies of the metal prints appear in shadow form—for me, an alternative form of drawing. The work is made through shaping, binding, compressing, dyeing, and, finally, printing with a unique process that photographically deposits articulate metal images on the surface.” Other work titled, Mill+Cross 1, 2, and 3, explores the space created by sewing copied lines traveling across a surface which is then plant-dyed.
Ms. Morris will be showing simultaneously with other exhibitions of work by Stephanie Suter, Helen Shulman, Ernest Montenegro, and Jonathan Sa’adah.
