Joel Morrison is best known for his composite sculptures, often created using found objects. Morrison’s work has been described as a combination of sculpture, architecture and gestural painting. Working with supplies such as vinyl, foam, tape, string and paint, Morrison assembles corporeal forms that bulge, stretch and seem to “morph” before our eyes. Reminiscent of the organic forms of Jean Arp, his bright pink untitled work conveys a concrete, figural presence. This lumpy, misshapen form is contrasted to an almost classically symmetrical pedestal. Morrison’s continued interest in making the pedestal a part of the work is realized through this shiny, geometric base that competes with, as well as complements, the form it supports.
On View: January 30- April 26
