The Irish Museum of Modern Art is delighted to present the first ever solo exhibition of works by Paul Morrison in Ireland -- a comprehensive overview of the artist's oeuvre over the past five years.

Paul Morrison has gained international recognition for his bold, graphic-style black and white landscape paintings and wall paintings. The exhibition haematoxylon includes site-specific wall installation accompanied by related paintings.

Drawing on plant imagery from popular and classical references, his breathtaking compositions produced by eliminating color, leave the viewer to project their own associated vision onto the canvas, utilizing color from behind the eye. Morrison's films combine heavily modified footage from a number of different sources that are manipulated to introduce a new focus on light and shadow.
