"theory of everything" by Jamey Morrill opens at Yellow Peril Gallery

PROVIDENCE, RI.- Yellow Peril Gallery presents "theory of everything", a 55% facetious, 45% serious exploration of existence by Providence-based sculptor Jamey Morrill.

The title “theory of everything” implies that Jamey Morrill will be revealing the mystery of existence and the answer to everyone’s burning questions with his wood and thread sculptures. “Nope,” says Morrill. “Super sorry about that.”

He explains: “Instead, I am acknowledging that after years of wondering and searching for the meaning behind all that is, I am still wondering and searching. I feel no closer to answers.”

And questions do abound, says Morrill: “Does this mean that the quest itself is the answer? Is the act of turning over every stone itself the ultimate end? Is this grace, the unified theory, or enlightenment?”

The sculptures featured in “theory of everything” will have a clarity aesthetically, but an ambiguity philosophically. They will be evocative but not representational.

“So, when I call the wall pieces in the show ‘Landscape Sculptures’, I am being intentionally vague,” says Morrill. “I want these sculptures to be landscapes of the mind, rather than copies of any external reality.”

The exhibition will be on display until Sunday, January 12, 2014. This is Morrill’s second exhibition at Yellow Peril Gallery.

Jamey Morrill is a Providence-based sculptor and adjunct professor of art at Rhode Island College in Providence, RI. In recent years Morrill's sculpture has become increasingly sprawling and site-specific, with emphasis on mass-produced materials and organic forms. Often using commonplace materials, such as plastic bottles, chicken wire, and duct tape, Morrill constructs sculptures that are outwardly cerebral and systematic but that are fundamentally random and irrational.

Morrill recently completed a residency at Fountainhead in Miami and was nominated for the Rappaport Prize from the DeCordova Museum in 2010 and The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant in 2009. Previous select solo and group exhibitions include: Yellow Peril Gallery, Providence (2012 & 2013), Locust Projects, Miami (2011 & 2012), Curfman Gallery at Colorado State University (2011), Maya Allison Projects (2010), Aqua Art Fair, Miami (2009) and David Winton Bell Gallery (2005). He received his M.F.A. in Sculpture from Indiana University, Bloomington in 2002 and his B.A in Art History from Bowdoin College in 1992.
