Department Faculty & Alumni Feature in Painting Series, "Paradigm Shift"


From the Lyndon House Website: In 2017, Lamar Dodd School fo Art Professor Margaret Morrison proposed a Faculty Research Grant to UGA’s Willson Center for the project, Contemporary Examination of Caravaggio’s Dramatic Staging and Lighting - A Collaboration between Painting and Theatre. This project resulted in a series of paintings investigating Caravaggio’s use of theatrical light. Morrison and her collaborator, Professor T. Anthony Marotta of the Department of Theatre and Film Studies, explored various methods of stage choreography for the purpose of photographing and collecting reference images. Marotta and Morrison discussed how to include the theater students in the project and in response Morrison created a script for Marotta and his students. This resulted in an extemporaneous stage performance directed by Marotta and documented by photographer, Gabrielle Rosenthal. The resulting collaboration provided Margaret Morrison with exceptional reference material for this new body of work entitled, Paradigm Shift. This suite of seven large oil paintings on canvas describes various stages of enlightenment from an awakening to transcendence.
