John Mulvany and Morgan Sorne: GHOSTSONGS
May 28 - June 11, 2009

"GHOSTSONGS showcases the work of John Mulvany (shown) and Morgan Sorne. The artists met while showing together at Galleri Urbane in Marfa, Texas and both utilize ghosts and spirits in their work for divergent reasons. Sorne’s life-sized painted cutouts of children and other ethereal figures set against mysterious landscapes evoke a post-apocalyptic future. Mulvany’s Irish gothic-tinged paintings of spectral figures haunting the homes of East Austin suggest a past that is not ready to be forgotten."
