Ivo Morrison

Ivo Morrison is a self-taught London based artist whose work reflects his confusion with the absence of narrative in contemporary painting.

The central idea of his work is the exploration of mystery. He explains this theme, stating, "Painting has one enormous advantage to the storyteller over literature, theatre, cinema or whatever, there's no need for a beginning, middle and end, it simply tells its story- asking a question with no need or possibility for an answer or conclusion. So I guess mystery appeals to me because Agatha Christie has to get Poirot to sit everyone down in the drawing room and answer the readers question. My stories get to exist in that uncertain state where the questions, if they are to be answered at all, can only be done so by the viewer."
