JOSIE MORWAY ‘Watershed’
Josie Morway is a painter and designer living and working in Providence, Rhode Island. Her works have shown widely, from the DeCordova Museum in Massachusetts to the streets of Juarez, Mexico.
Morway’s paintings are fragmented narratives, inspired by everyday words and phrases that bombard us – old signage, broken billboards, overheard conversations. Morway is of the opinion that omissions tell half the story.
Substituting animals for human characters in her visual narratives, she explores gestures, postures and expressions that are familiar and universal but at the same time ambiguous.
