International Residency in Graphic Studio Dublin 2009



Canadian artist, and teacher at Brock University in Canada, Merijean Morrissey is currently Artist in Residence on an International Residency in Graphic Studio Dublin.

Morrissey's own practice focuses on the use of poetic devices where visual metaphors are used primarily to enhance meaning. She is interested in memory and history with its inscribed record upended in a mythic journey. The work attempts to break free of logic and cultural boundaries. Pattern, the cosmos, and various cultural artifacts are depicted in the works. However, what is portrayed in the paintings and prints is a disjointed fiction rather than a linear projection.
