ABSTRACT MOVIES

by George L.K. MORRIS
1937-1947 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 10' 55




"Morris’s films are the only known examples of an established American abstract painter creating purposeful film abstractions. Like his paintings, Morris’s films combine rigorous formal experiments with humorous asides. Making brief appearances alongside the mustachioed Morris are his red-headed wife, Suzy Frelinghuysen, a brunette friend, and three Partisan Review colleagues." - Gregory Galligan
