NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale will present Malcolm Morley: Shipwreck, in collaboration with Hall Art Foundation.
Malcolm Morley (b. London, 1931-2018) achieved widespread acclaim in the 1960s for his photo-based paintings. This exhibition focuses on the recurring ship motif in Morley’s work from his earliest superrealist paintings of ocean liners in the 1960s to his imaginative paintings of complex compositions of battles and other catastrophes based on still-lifes he arranged of toy model boats and planes in later years.
