Based in Los Angeles, Rebecca Morris has spent the past two decades of her distinguished career expanding her own personal and idiosyncratic vernacular of abstraction.
Morris' paintings often include organic shapes separated by jagged borders, a constellation of pigments which recall maps or aerial landscapes. Oils are thinned to the point of watercolor and judiciously applied from above. Morris positions her large canvases face up on the floor so that the thin paints do not drip right off the surface. As most paintings are significantly larger than her own body, she glides just above them on custom-built scaffolding, a literal bridge on wheels which allows her a greater opportunity to direct the unruly, fluid color.
