Ambrus: New works by Morgana Wallace

Thu. May 10th 2012 - Sun. May 27th 2012
Morgana Wallace's art is intricately layered with references to history, culture, and mythology. Possessing a rare mixture of vibrant spontaneity and meticulous skill, her images brim over with energy and movement. Morgana's endless cast of strange and beautiful characters usher us into their imaginative and sometimes disquieting worlds.

This body of work, Ambrus, is a tribute to Morgana's favourite illustrators. Throughout her artistic life, she has been struck by the importance of illustration to the overall impact of the book, believing that illustrators deserve respect as legitimate artists. Now having compiled her own book of illustrations, Morgana pays homage to the illustrators who illuminated her imagination and taught her how to see the stories in images.
