Growing up the son of rock legend Bjørn Morisse, frontman of The Young Norwegians, has provided painter Andre von Morisse with a treasure trove of imagery surrounding his bohemian parents from which to construct a narrative investigation of his much mediated childhood. The present show, which includes this cherubic image of the young painter, announces itself as Part One of what may prove to be an epic cycle. von Morisse is the husband of gallery proprietor Silas von Morisse.
