Julia Morrisroe

My paintings don’t hold secrets or grand revelations; they are not puzzles to be solved. My paintings are open conversations with myself about our oceans of imagery and with the history of painting. They are places where I can launch formal elements and materials so a viewer can slip from an edge, stumble across a smear of paint or fall into a tangle of lines and feel the tension or release. My work seeks to hold the visual noise still and locate an instant in which all that activity coalesces and locates an opening within the tradition of painting.
