Merlin James Co-curates Adrian Morris


Adrian Morris

New Foundations

26th September – 25th October 2015, 42 Carlton Place

Reception 25th September 6-9 PM

AICA UK member Merlin James and Carol Rhodes present a rare exhibition of the paintings of Adrian Morris (1929-2004).

“A unique contribution to the show [the 1978 Hayward Annual], however, was a group of sixteen works by London painter Adrian Morris. They depicted horizons and flat planetary terrains, marked by traces of habitation or intervention, and often seemingly viewed through apertures from one zone to another. The works were loaded with absent presences, and sometimes concealed ghost images of human figures beneath the final paint surface. Though aged nearly fifty, Morris had exhibited rarely, and for some visitors his Hayward showing was a revelation.”
