Julia Morison's multi-panel work – which can be rehung in any order – began life as part of a much larger ‘endless painting’, which was then broken up into smaller sequences.It borrows its title from a prose poem Anna Smith wrote in response, capturing its open-ended, free-associating spirit.
By combining incompatible varnishes, Julia creates fine splits in the painted surface. She then rubs pigment into these cracks, generating hundreds of suggestive, zigzagging lines that extend wherever she chooses. No Names for Things No String for 03 unravels an imaginative visual world in which the only rule is constant change.
