Rebecca Morris paints challenging large-scale abstractions. Known for writing “Abstraction never left, motherfuckers” in a 2004 painting manifesto when abstraction was out of favor in the art world, Morris has developed an unconventional, post-Bauhaus visual language that suggests new directions for abstract painting. Her canvases teem with unusual, seemingly disconnected shapes, each rendered in a different technique and floating freely through space. “I want my work to be a dynamic presence, to create visual and physical impact in a space,” Morris said in a 2012 interview. “In general I’ve found that people respond to my work over time, so the highest compliment would be if someone wanted to spend lengthy and repeated time with my work.”
