New Art Exchange, Nottingham
Morph presents Terra Nova, an exciting exhibition of new works by the members of Morph.
Terra Nova explores the scope of work produced by the members of Morph. This is work which ranges from sensitive, site responsive wall drawings, to thoughtful reflections on the historic human cost of local quarrying industries, to a playful exploration of the concept of location, to counterfeit confectionaries celebrating the forthcoming 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Morph invites visitors to explore their Terra Nova and discover new lands for themselves.

"ADVENTURE IN PAINTING"
A play with chance, design and process.
Inspired by science Barbara was fascinated to discover how chance and uncertainty can lead to finding new images. She starts by making spontaneous, arbitrary marks using a process of dripping, throwing and pouring the paint as well as tilting or shaking the canvas. She intervenes using her intuition to add to or dilute the medium. By this method some startling new forms emerge. This experimental way of working has produced a series of images ranging from the deceptively simple to complex original forms.
