Anthony Morton’s paintings are the result of experimental, unpredictable and sometimes hard won negotiations with his work. Striving for a genuine, unpretentious practice devoid of preconceived outcomes, Morton surrenders to the painting process, allowing it to determine the destination of his work. His diverse range of layering and re-working of the canvas results in highly tactile and seductive surfaces that record exploration and immediacy: paint is plastered, seeped, washed and brushed on until the painting is finished. Ultimately he attempts to create visually arresting paintings; exploring, challenging and testing the threshold of what can be seen.
