Morley Shayuk is a multidisciplinary artist working and living in Ontario’s Prince Edward County region. His abstract compositions explore the virtues of the organic shape. Shayuk’s paintings are “disturbed by rigorous reshaping of surface and form which explore the garden and facilitate renewal both conceptually and personally. Themes of nature become ornamental, objectified and controlled through experimental and time based working methods. The organic qualities of Shayuk’s painterly approach are interrupted by the artist’s objective to communicate possible functions for his subject matter. In doing so, Shayuk’s abstractions present a science fiction that considers aesthetic and consumptive values, and offers ambiguous strategies for harvesting infinite energy sources.”

Shayuk’s works have been the subject of six solo exhibitions at Paul Petro Contemporary Art in Toronto as well as various group exhibitions across Canada.
