Julia Morison’s show at Two Rooms, Omnium Gatherum, features works including paintings, drawings and digital prints. Across canvas, paper and pressed polyurethane supports, fine lines demarcate fantastical contraptions, organic shapes and geometric patterns. Inspired by the recent craze for adult colouring-in books, several pieces are akin to cloisonné where strong black outlines host jewels of colour within their borders. A group of larger canvas works show the use of crackling paint, and there is a sense of vibrancy, delicacy, and originality that consistently stamps itself on Morison’s work, and on all the pieces that comprise Omnium Gatherum.
