This new body of work draws on the artist’s everyday experience of sharing her body with an unwanted virus in her eye, which affects her vision. The paintings of the Viral Sublime expose a symbiosis between oil paint(ing), virology, and contemporary concepts of the sublime. Exploring the organic substance of oil paint and its relationship with the behaviour of viruses, Morris constructs a narrative of sensations in which personal and historical references intersect.
