Passion and Presence, Memento and Myth
The work of Jim Morphesis
Artist Lecture at Cal Poly Pomona Kellogg University Art Gallery.
Tuesday Jan. 30 2018 11:30am - 1:30pm
Through archetypal and allegorically-infused subjects and themes, Morphesis offers an encounter with the existential, ontological and ever-ephemeral search for life's meaning: the philosophical questions regarding the nature of "being" and the understanding of "self", both internally, and communally as a human, race, emerge. This probing expedition confronts our own inescapable mortality, and leads towards the always elemental human query of spiritual immortality. Symbiotically fused with Morphesis styles and techniques including abstraction, Cubism, assemblage, Abstract Expressionism, and Hyperrealism, Morphesis' six bodies of artwork also become a purposeful voyage through art historical disciplines of visual expression, while inevitably crossing through the self-imposed straights of auto-reflection, and the human collective's conscientiousness.
