#CASatHome, with Victoria Morton

5 June 2020 By

Victoria Morton’s paintings are layered with washes of colour and texture, within which the complexity of visual representation and physical experience is re-evaluated as her gestural, animated drawings offer indications of form, only to be consumed by the drip and soak of pigment and turpentine – a corporeal tension between opposing methods of application that transmit the palpable psychological situation driving her performative painting. Unconcerned with painterly cues of perspective and traditional figuration, Morton allows her actions to circulate, assemblages of colour and line tracing shape and space, building surfaces that vibrate with narrative potential and direct energy. Distilled and composed, her canvases are designed to unfold over time, expanding the space and structure of the painting into the mind of the viewer.
