The exhibition Colour Order by Simon Morris offers a broad array of chromatic reflections that test the eye and the mind. There is something rhythmic in Morris’s latest geometric abstractions. The resolute simplicity and repetition of his compositional choices allows colour to take centre stage as it shifts from translucent through to more opaque paint. These new Colour Order paintings suggest a shift across the surface from dark to light, however the logic is disrupted through colour saturation and temperature. Taking a methodical and systemic approach to painting, Morris has stated previously in reference to his Pause paintings that this methodology “ creates images that I wouldn’t come up with myself. It’s like the system partly makes the work.” These new works bounce off that notion. The painterly process looks to be orderly for there is a precision and flawlessness to the works. Yet, there is an open engagement with the fluidity of paint and decisions around colour. In fact, these paintings can be described as distinctly ‘hand made’.
