Keith Morrison: Middle Passage

September 7-December 11, 2011

Keith Morrison: Middle Passage highlights a selection of oil paintings and watercolors from the last decade by the Jamaican-born artist.  Morrison’s work engages local, global, and Caribbean diasporic concerns. A recent suite of works, forcefully evocative yet reductive in form, give this exhibition its title: Middle Passage. At once a reference to the cross-Atlantic passage that brought enslaved Africans to the Americas in an elaborate trade route—Europe, Africa, the Americas—the significance of Middle Passage is redoubled in the context of Morrison’s paintings that favor an iconography of cultural mélange. Settled and unsettled territories, unseen tragedy implied by trauma, verdant and enigmatic groves and waterways, permeate the work of the artist. Deeply mythical and often political, Morrison’s exquisite paintings offer sensory delight and compositional shrewdness.  Morrison is professor of art at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.
