Limited Edition of Annie Morris for Château La Coste
Woman with Colour - Annie Morris
Thread on linen canvas (25x33.5 cm)
Edition of 50 + 10AP
Born in 1978, Annie Morris studied under Giuseppe Penone at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. As the first artist to occupy the new Pavillon of Château La Coste designed by Oscar Niemeyer, Annie Morris draws on her own experience as well as on the history of art in her work. For her debut in France, the artist offers sculptures, tapestries and paintings that have never been shown before. At the heart of the exhibition is a group of "Stacks" sculptures.
Annie's exhibition also highlights the importance of drawing, painting and embroidery. The artist has therefore created a limited edition embroidered work especially for Château La Coste, an edition that echoes the various productions in the exhibition and that uses the embroidery technique used in her tapestries.
Woman with Colour represents a female form and refers in its colours to her sculpture series "Stacks" - the brightly coloured towers emblematic of the artist's work. The silhouettes of the sculptures, composed of a few spheres, have a quasi-figurative aspect, recalling the female body and the curves of pregnancy. Oscillating between abstraction and figuration, like her sculptures, this edition presents one of her recurring motifs around the female silhouette: random coloured lines. These lines underline Annie Morris' fascination with colour and her experimental work with pigments, which she wants to capture in their purest form.
“There is not a day that goes by that I don’t draw something, and this is the beginning of all my work”
