Artist in Focus: Jeromy Morris

Jeromy Morris is not only the curator of the Cider Gallery and the director at SeedCo Studios, he is also a mixed media artist living and working in Lawrence, KS.

Jeromy Morris was born in Denver, CO and he received his Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications and Graphic Design from the University of Kansas. Since that time, he has co-founded the Fresh Produce Art Collective, is the Director at SeedCo Studios (a venue that merges art and music which was founded by the Fresh Produce Art Collective) and is our very own curator here at the Cider Gallery.

Morris has shown in a variety of galleries and special exhibitions, such as the show: “More Than Meets the Eye,” a collaboration with John Sebelius at the Cider Gallery in 2014. Most recently, he is participating in the current exhibition at the Cider Gallery, “Re: Solution,” with fellow Fresh Produce Art Collective artists: Jeremy Rockwell, Erok Johanssen, and Yuri Zupancic.

His artwork, which has been featured in numerous private collections, emphasizes the relationship between two or more disparate mediums. In this way, Morris finds inspiration through his exploration of multiple mediums that are continually infused with movement and emotion. This tendency toward movement is especially obvious in his video art and installation pieces. Despite this, he is most known for his two-dimensional works on panels. These two-dimensional works often emphasize mood and the recollection of memory. They are a motley of various materials. Epoxy, acrylic, toner transfers, spray paint, and found objects vie for space on found-wood pieces or panels. Morris’ works are primarily inspired by the interactions between opposing forces; consumerism and advertising are pitted against urban ruins and the forces that exist between nature and industry.

Not sure exactly what draws me to nature, but the draw is strong. I’m my happiest and calmest when in it. And my worst when away from it. I’m my most creative when simply out for a walk in the forest.
