These works are on display in Charing Cross hospital and showcase Mali Morris’s exploration of colour relationships through pure abstraction. The works include the screen-prints Bridge (2014), made with the master printer Kip Gresham, and Ruby Tuesday (2011) which allows us to view her painterly interest in colour and space. Wilbury 5 x 4 explores the luminosity and interaction of colour through the layering of acrylic on paper. Our collection of over 2,000 works of art also includes an early work by Mali Morris Half Pales of Green (1987).
Mali Morris writes: ‘I know that one of my own pleasures is to begin to look into a painting that catches my attention and feel I’m getting lost inside it. Just roaming around in its colour and space, whether figurative or abstract, can lead me away from conscious time and the everyday, and I return refreshed. I hope these works will offer an invitation to enter their spaces, and the different kinds of light in them. As a grateful admirer of the NHS I am delighted that some of my paintings and prints now sit on the walls of Charing Cross Hospital.’ (London 2016)
