ABOUT THE ARTIST // Rebecca Morris’ distinct and constantly evolving motifs include step patterns, checkerboards, stylized grids, and overlapping hook shapes the artist refers to as “lobster claws,” a nod to her upbringing in Connecticut and appreciation for maritime iconography. These different typologies of paintings are sometimes combined to make hybrid works. These are not “sister paintings” so much as cousins in a long lineage of studio experimentation which yield dynamic, surprising results. Morris works similarly with color, sometimes attempting the “ultimate” painting in an unexpected palette of red, mauve, or charcoal, disguising various other pigments in plain sight to better punctuate her opulent, power clashing patterns.
