Annie Morris

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Using over 1500 of clothes pins to combine painting & sculpture to dramatic affect is what artist Annie Morris is most famed for. Each peg is individually painted using watercolours of 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 & 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.

    Provenance: Winston Watcher Fine Art, New York, NY

    Biography
    Multimedia artist Annie Morris has produced painting, sculpture, and collage, but she first became known for illustrations: in 2003, she 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.

    Annie is currently showing at Winston Watcher Gallery in NYC
