June 21 - 24
Closing Exhibition: June 24
In recent years Jamey Morrill's sculpture has become increasingly sprawling and site-specific. Often using commonplace materials, such as plastic bottles, chicken wire, and duct tape, Morrill constructs sculptures that are outwardly cerebral and systematic but that are fundamentally random and irrational. In Morrill's Transplant, PVC pipes sprout from the gallery walls and extend out into the allery space in elaborate maze-like patterns. These pipes, in turn, plug directly into strange, vulnerable-looking organic sculptures on the floor, as if providing some kind of life-support.
This piece is a work in progress which he is preparing for an exhibition at Colorado State University in Fort Collins later this year.
Morrill is an adjunct professor of art at Rhode Island College in Providence. He has shown his sculpture in solo exhibitions at Marlboro College in Vermont, the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, and the Community College of Rhode Island. He received his M.F.A. in sculpture from Indiana University, Bloomington, in 2002, and his B.A. in art history from Bowdoin College in 1992.
This show is a Residency Program Exhibition.
