Simon Morris - Room of Time
Simon Morris’s Room of Time was made by Simon Morris over a ten day period between 19-29 September 2022 in the Hancock Gallery of City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi. It is part of Morris's ongoing exploration into the occupation of space through time-based abstract painting.
This is the fourth ‘wall work’ Morris has made at City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi. Each brushstroke extends what has become a sustained encounter with these spaces that stretches back over twenty-five years, but meets us in the direct experience of a painting encountered in the here and now.
- By Simon Morris
- Featuring the exhibition Room of Time showcased at City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi in 2022
- Abstract in form and impermanent in nature, this painting existed only for the duration of the exhibition.
