George L.K. MORRIS

Nationalité américaine

“Morris, first art critic of Partisan Review (1937-1942), studied painting with John Sloan and Fernand Léger. A proponent of Parisian cubism, Morris insisted that art aspire to a state of abstract purity. His work is defined by geometric stasis and calm, sometimes mixed with quirky references to indigenous American culture.” - Gregory Galligan
“The oddest ... forms in nature may sometimes be the seed for abstract pictures. The markings may be made by a leak on the ceiling, a cloud, a piece of some mechanism, a newspaper advertisement, almost anything can suggest a shape for a painting.” - George L. K. Morris (Partisan Review, September-October 1941)
