The gallery is open Tuesday- Saturday 10 a.m. 5:30 p.m. The exhibition will close Oct.11.
Simulacrum is essential in the paintings and installations of Ronald Morn. Morn creates totally static environments, mise en scene void of human characters. Installations are often domestic or familiar spaces covered with white industrial cotton. The subjects for Morns soft and quiet paintings also depict domestic objects or objects of violence sheathed in this same white nebulous material. Morns goal is to neutralize his subject and represent the impact of contemporary societys lack of sensitivity to violence and the definitions of our domestic roles.
Born in Chalchuapa, El Salvador in 1972, Morn studied art at Centro Nacional de Artes San Salvador and Universidad Dr. Jos Matas Delgado San Salvador. Morn has participated in twelve solo shows in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico. He has participated ingroup shows throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. In 2007, Morn represented El Salvador at the Venice Biennale. This will be his first solo show with PanAmerican ArtProjects.
About PanAmerican ArtProjects
Pan American Art Projects specializes in art of the Americas with the mission to build a bridge between North and South American cultures by presenting and exhibiting artists from both regions concurrently. We deal with emerging to established artists, as well as secondary market paintings, sculpture, and works on paper.
Originally Pan American Art Gallery, in 2006 we modified our name to reflect our expansion and evolution into a dynamic contemporary art venture. In December 2006 we opened a 4,500 square foot space in the Wynwood District of Miami, which features two exhibition rooms, a video box, sculpture garden, and an apartment with a studio for visiting artists. In September 2007, the Dallas gallery opened in a new location in the Dallas Design District at 1615 Dragon St.
The galleries are active members of the Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas and the Wynwood Art Association.
