The Zen of Driving
Artsy Online Exclusive Exhibition
Woodward Gallery, NYC
Margaret Morrison departs from her still-lifes to share the zen of driving. She is inexorably drawn to a point on the horizon…. a point beyond her sightline, “where I can crawl inside my head and look around, unpack my thoughts, and unload my baggage.”
That point on the horizon always hovering just out of reach perpetually draws Morrison toward a half hidden moment full of promise where reality and time detach themselves from consciousness, thus allowing the Artist to settle back and clear her mind.
Morrison shares, “I love long distance driving. I love the romance of the landscape hurtling past me, the road stretching out for hundreds of miles as I speed along toward an undetermined destination. Nothing is as metaphysically liberating.” Morrison’s highways are a vacation for the mind, body and soul.
Woodward Gallery is presenting this body of work directly on our website, as an ARTSY Online Exclusive Exhibition and Viewing Room (Artsy.net). Private appointments are also available.
