About Sarah Morris

Sarah Morris's work explores the signs and power structures embedded in the built environment. She is best known for her geometric, abstract paintings and film portraits of American metropolises, which play with the architecture, colors, forms, and psychology she associates with each city. In Robert Towne (2006), a temporary installation at New York's Lever House that expanded on her "Los Angeles" canvases (2005-06), Morris employed sign painters to transform a 19,755-square-foot cross section of the lobby and courtyard with brightly colored shapes. She has also worked in film; Beijing (2008) focuses on the Beijing Olympics, observing the perplexing and often contradictory economics behind the spectacle in a fantastical and surreal portrait of the city.

American, b. 1967, Sevenoaks, Kent, United Kingdom
