LPP+ July Residency: Indira Martina Morre

indira-small

We’re pleased to announce our July 2016 resident: Indira Martina Morre. She will be working in our studio at the Minnesota Street Project Studios on some of her ongoing projects. From her website:

Indira Martina Morre’s practice is conceptually driven with a focus on mark making employed in the service of a socially relevant investigation.
Her project Passwords: Sign Disintegration (2007 – present) consists of paintings rendered in ink and graphite on smooth, gessoed surfaces. These intricately detailed, multilayered works appropriate digital symbols to examine the modification of our cognition and experience of the world in the engulfing presence of technology.

In To-Do Lists: Survival of Art Production (2014 – present) Morre redraws scanned images of notes, memos, sketches, and calendars from practicing Bay Area artists. Morre has involved herself in a timely and necessary conversation about the everyday realities of creative labor and the multiple roles artists play in order to sustain their practices.

Wallet:Desire (2015 – present) makes use of a collection of over 400 mailer credit cards sent to Morre by various banks and financial institutions attempting to snare another debtor. She alters these cards to transform them into wallet paintings and affixes them to modified offer letters that invite viewers to apply for a Wallet:Desire card of their own. This project is based in her personal experience and informed by readings such as David Graeber’s Debt: The First 5000 Years, which posits that debt is the foundation of our culture.

Morre received a BA, with a double major in Art History and Art Practice, and an MFA from UC Berkeley where she is currently teaching painting, drawing, figure drawing, and senior thesis classes. Morre is the recipient of numerous awards including The Harry Ford Lord Award and The Eisner Prize in Art. Her work was recently exhibited at The Painting Center in New York, A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, Croatian Association of Artists in Zagreb, Croatia, George Lawson Gallery in San Francisco, Kala Art Gallery in Berkeley, Royal NoneSuch Gallery and Krowswork in Oakland, Green Chalk Contemporary in Monterey, Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley Art Center, MarinMOCA, SFMOMA Artist Gallery, and Cain Schulte Contemporary Art Gallery in San Francisco.

The work of San Francisco-based artist Mallory Lucille Rose.  The above, which includes selections from Rose’s Misteaks, Houses and Post-its series’, illustrates the artist’s humor and ability to capture and share the ephemeral; those fleeting moments in time when the steaks are uncooked, shadows are cast on a classic San Francisco house and a note is passed.
