Danny Morgan: Recent Paintings

September 11 - October 25, 2014

Denise Bibro Fine Art in Chelsea is pleased to announce Floridian artist Danny Morgan’s second solo exhibition, Recent Paintings, on view through October 25, 2014.

Morgan’s recent abstract work furthers his exploration of color and timeless fluidity of line and form. Inspired by his painting process and guitar playing, he creates chords of color, juxtaposed to his colored skeletal sketches, creating intriguing lyrical compositions.

Danny Morgan since graduating from East Kentucky University and being an art professor in the 70s has successfully established himself as a professional painter and musician.

His passion for rhythm coincides with the way he uses both his brush and his guitar. Utilizing warm, vibrant saturations of color, Morgan succeeds in creating a visceral, lyrical composition of chords comprised of organic and biomorphic shapes. The quick-drying qualities of acrylic paint are a natural choice for Morgan, provoking the action of painting. Morgan uses the brush in the same fluid manner he plays chords on his guitar; sometime spontaneous but also deliberate. Morgan’s actions induce vibrations that result in splashes of colored forms, creating notes of color that often connect and disconnect like music.

Morgan’s mission is not to dictate the meaning of the chords in his compositions, but is to create a colorful, visceral scored experience for the viewer. His paintings depict transitional space between music and color coming together into visual form. The viewer interprets his or her own intellectual, emotional, and visceral response to each work.
