Carl Morris

Feingarten Galler­y

Richly textured configurations of great natural phenomena are the subjects in these oils by one of the West Coast’s leading artists. Morris’ recent works represent a development towards more abundant, glowing, refined, crystallized color and surfaces that tingle with the organic weave of sensuously applied pigment. Rock, earth, air and growth assume the characteristics of elements which are very much alive, and are part of a remarkable universe of still, timeless, rudimentary matter. Morris is the only artist of note who comes to mind as the one dedicated and unashamed interpreter of the essence of nature in a manner which fuses powerful emotional and clear formal content into meaningful geological symbols.
