Joey Morgan
Catch + Release

Exhibition continues until March 3, 2018

Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain
963 rue Rachel Est
Montreal QC

Catch + Release is a two-part installation of recent work by Joey Morgan. Catch + Release (1) is comprised of a series of painting assemblages, primarily graphite, oil and powdered pigment on mylar. Catch + Release (2) is a series of very short video vignettes -ad hoc assemblies of disparate images and narration. These two parts are connected by a large video projection of a bonfire.

However abstract the conceptual framework may be, the first punch is emotional. Scale and points of attachment tether a piece to the analog world; but gaps are the essential components, giving the work breath. The piece may address shared experience from a particular voice, but it is received, interpreted and essentially altered by the visitor. What meaning there is resides with the viewer. These romantic precepts have endured, I think, throughout the body of my work.
