PARKER LILY TUSON-MORSE SOLO EXHIBITION
Workflow presents One Foot In, One Foot Out a solo exhibition by Parker Lily Tuson-Morse.
Parker Lily Tuson-Morse is a Toronto-born artist, who works primarily in painting, using both traditional materials and laser engraving. Through pushing the bounds of realism, Parker Lily illustrates a concept of self that refuses fixity and is constantly shapeshifting in an ever-changing environment. She employs distorted figuration as a way to traverse the many aspects of ‘selves,’ our bodily relationship to sexuality, and how external relationships and the digital realm influence our internal landscape. Using machines as prosthetic devices in the creation process, she explores how technology alters identity, its dissemination through digital media, and how these external structures complicate our relationship to the self even further. Her practice is influenced by dream motifs and psychoanalytic theories of the self, as well as the surrealist practices of automatism, mirroring and distortion, in which parts of the figure have been deconstructed and reconstructed through natural and technological interventions.
