Annie Morris, Untitled Peg Piece, 2010

Price Upon Request

About

Using 1500 clothes pins to combine painting and sculpture to a dramatic affect is what artist Annie Morris is most famed for. Each peg is individually painted using watercolours to create the naked female form. Her work usually encompasses lots of smaller pieces that are art in their own right, but come together to make one large piece with an overwhelming satisfaction. A social commentary exploring the relationship between the individual and the influence they can have on their surroundings, Annie’s work provides a great sense of perspective. We are all different, but we are all relative to our surroundings.

Between 1997 and 1998 she studied at Foundation, St. Martins College of Art and Design. In 1998 she started her experience at Giuseppe Penone’s Studio, and then attended the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. In the period between 2002 and 2003, she completed her academic career at London Slade School of Art. In 2000 she won the Homer Scholarship Award, and in 2002, she received an award for her drawing skills from the École des Beaux Arts. It was 2003 when Annie Morris came into the public eye for her collaboration with her longtime friend Sophie Dahl (granddaughter of the famous British children’s writer Roald Dahl) on the book Man with the Dancing Eyes. Morris has stated that she does not feel attached to a singular medium, and prefers to characterize her work as “usually made up of lots of smaller pieces that come together to make one big piece.” Among her best-known works are painting-sculptures comprised of individually painted wooden clothespins; in 2006, Burberry commissioned her to make a dress in the same format. In 2012, Morris and her husband, the artist Idris Kahn, collaborated on a project using Comme des Garçon wallets. Since 2004, her works have been displayed in several solo exhibitions: There Is A Land Called Loss, Pertwee Anderson and Gold Gallery, Londra, 2012; Annie Morris, Winston Wachter Gallery, New York , 2010; When A Happy Thing Falls, Allsopp Contemporary Gallery, Londra; When A Happy Thing Falls, Jeannie Frielich Contemporary, New York, 2007; Annie Morris, Lightbox Gallery, Los Angeles, 2006; Annie Morris: Glass Paintings, Postcards, Thomas Williams Gallery, Londra; Annie Morris, Laura Bartlett Gallery, Londra, 2005; Annie Morris (curated by Nick Hackworth), The Adams Street Club, Londra; The Man With The Dancing Eyes, Daniel Katz Gallery, 2004. Moreover, her artworks are already part of a certain number of international art collections such as: The Cranford Collection, Londra; The Colorado University Museum, Colorado; The Gersh Collection, Los Angeles; Nat Rothchild, New York; Maleki, Londra; Alexand Guy Delall, Londra; Lucy Liu, New York; Janger, Los Angeles; Victoria and Warren Miro, Londra; Maryam Eisler, Londra; Norman Rosenthal, Londra; Raqib Shaw, Londra. Annie is currently showing at Winston Watcher Gallery in NYC and the Project B Gallery in Milano. Many of her works have been installed in Peter Marino's renovation of the Louis Vuitton Place Venodome headquarters. Contact us with any additional questions you may have Net price upon request.
