Quentin Morris: Works on Paper
June 13-September 16, 2013
“I’m exploring monochromatic painting, exclusively black…to present black’s intrinsically enigmatic beauty and infinite depth [and] to relentlessly refute all negative cultural mythologies about the color.”
– Quentin Morris
This exhibition of drawings and paintings on paper by Philadelphia-based artist Quentin Morris (b. 1945) features over 30 examples from a 5-decade practice dedicated to the production of monochromatic works. Executed in a range of black mediums and supports, including commercial wrapping paper and mailers, these previously unexhibited works were selected from the artist’s studio and date from 1977 to 2012.
Please stay posted for details about public programs scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition on July 13 and September 6.
