Malcolm Morley: On Paper
Parrish Art Museum
For over forty years, the paintings of Malcolm Morley have heightened our perceptions and expanded the possibilities for ways of seeing the world around us. Little explored until now is the seminal role of paper in his art-making process, whether as watercolors sourced for paintings, small scale models that float off the canvas, or the dimensionality of free-standing sculpture— ideas that subsequently serve as inspiration for inventive forays into screenprint, etching, and monotype. Organized by Alicia Longwell, the Parrish’s Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education, Malcolm Morley: On Paper will illuminate the artist’s working method while underscoring the seamless transition among mediums and the dazzling passages of this progression.
