John Morris practices what critic Allan Weiss calls “ poetics of the ad infinitum” an ecstatic but precise doodling in which handmade marks stand for unrepresentable holism. His drawings are roughly the size of lined binder paper and are often made on just this unassuming support. For Morris art is a direct, indexical and therefore euphoric transcription of thought, in which every sign is motivated by some mystical urgency known only to the author.
John Morris was born in 1965. He lives and works in Pittsburg.
