In her first solo show in London at the Herrick Gallery, Dr Suzi Morris presents large scale paintings alongside a group of smaller works on aluminium and canvas. This is the first time that Morris has exhibited diptychs and triptychs that comprise both aluminium and canvas.
The Viral Sublime refers to a body of paintings, which expose a symbiosis between oil paint(ing), virology, and contemporary concepts of the sublime. Morris’ approach to painting evolves out of questioning her everyday personal experiences of sharing her body with an unwanted virus, which plays havoc with her vision. Exploring the organic substance of oil paint and its relationship with the behaviour of viruses, Morris constructs a narrative of sensations in which personal and historical references intersect.
