Rebecca Morris: The Ache of Bright

Since the early 1990s, the Los Angeles-based artist Rebecca Morris has explored the vast visual language of abstract painting. Inventing an extensive array of original forms, compositional rules and improvisational associations, Morris creates highly considered images that simultaneously construct and disassemble themselves. Varying widely in scale and density, her paintings are both unpredictable and precise, often featuring an ebullient cacophony of hues, patterns, layers and gestures. This exhibition, Morris’s first solo U.S. museum presentation since 2005, features 10 major paintings that survey the range of the artist’s recent practice. More information here
