About the work

Josie Morway is a self-taught artist who has been painting most of her life. Her works are fragmented narratives, inspired by everyday words and phrases that bombard us, such as old signage, broken billboards, and 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. For the last year, she has been working steadily on a series of paintings about symbols that she considers relevant to both wildlife and civilization, titled "Untame vs. The Domesticati."
