Robert Claiborne Morris – “The Translucents”
Robert Claiborne Morris, Tybee Island based artist and Chief Communications Officer for the Georgia Ports Authority, will demonstrate the process he employed to create his new series – “The Translucents” – at Gallery Espresso, October 18, 5-8 pm. The new works, printed on aluminum and framed with weathered fencing, incorporate images he discovered when light caused news stories to superimpose, one upon another, through newsprint. “I wanted to create a new way of seeing the news. These light inspired translucents, I believe, often say much more than the sum of their parts.” Morris, who has created art in Savannah for two decades, previously worked as a journalist for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the New Orleans Times-Picayune and the now defunct United Press International. Morris will help show viewers how to see new ideas and pictures by looking at daily newspapers in a previously unexplored way. Morris’ art has been exhibited in solo shows at museums, galleries and libraries across the country, including: The Telfair Museums, The Cincinnati Museum Center, Margaret Mitchell House, Rosa Parks Museum and The King Center.
Opening reception is October 18th from 5p-8p
