Forrest J. Morrison
*Subject to Non-Renewal
May 6th – June 3rd, 2017
Artist Statement:
/Subject To Non-Renewal/ is an exploration of contemporary western identity in still life. Borrowing from the western aesthetic and themes, Morrison addresses the commodification of Nature using found and staged natural elements to draw broader metaphors for contemporary cultural norms. In the same way that Morrison’s technical ability allows him to convey depth, detail and light, his wit and confronting nature as an artist allows him to poignantly poke at the consumers and socially obsessed selfie-takers in all of us.
