Edith Borax-Morrison is showing recent drawings at Kehler Liddell Gallery, New Haven from August 19-September 26, 2010. Also showing are new paintings and pastels by Lisa Hess Hesselgrave. There will be an artist reception on Sunday, September 12 from 3-6 pm with an artist talk at 3 pm.

Morrison's ink drawings are simultaneously explosive and controlled. She has characterized her work as "mind fibers", and her titles give insight into the concepts behind each drawing. Her meticulously executed abstract forms seem to undulate on the paper on which they are drawn.

From the press release: "Morrison’s works relate to Gego’s wire sculptures and Escher’s drawings, or more recently to the work of James Siena.  They reference influences from both Eastern and Western culture, including African masks, folklore and memory, beaded jewelry and maps."

Kehler Liddell Gallery is located at 873 Whalley Ave., New Haven, CT.
