Loukas Morley: In Pursuit of Beauty – Perfect Imperfections

16/07/2015

 

Loukas Morley was born in 1973 and lives and works in Cambridge. He has exhibited widely, recently – What Cannot Be Contained: Contemporary British Painting, Smiths Row, Bury St Edmonds; The Fall Of The Rebel Angels – VENEZIA 56, 56th International Biennale, Venice; Sunday in the Park with Ed, Display Gallery, London, Expresso Library Café, Cambridge and Churchill College, Cambridge.  His work is held in a number of private collections and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.

 

This exhibition is a survey of work from the past 5 years and focuses on his longstanding interest in the materiality of paint and love of wood and the exploration of the act of creativity.

 

Morley presents a series of sensual and often romantic encounters with material. Often using found objects, Loukas utilises a wide range of materials in the construction of his work, where wood, resin, paint, paper, cloth and furniture are assembled as individual notes painstakingly built up to create a score that has a calculated precision, disciplined yet playful.

 

His inspiration is derived from the material itself, he searches for beauty through the arrangements of line, mark and tone that spark a resonance or language that harmonise to form an overall work. His work is the exploration into the poetry of form and material, choreographically noting the art object’s relationship to the exhibition space.
