Join Richard Torchia, Director, Arcadia Exhibitions, and Matthew Borgen, Exhibitions Coordinator, for the first of several events planned in conjunction with “Quentin Morris: Works on Paper.” Food and drinks will be provided. “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, and ultimately to create work that innately expresses the all encompassing spirituality of life.” – 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 2013. Please stay posted for details about public programs scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition on July 13 and September 6. All works courtesy of the artist and Larry Becker Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Quentin Morris is represented by Larry Becker Contemporary Art, Philadelphia and Blum & Poe, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and New York.
