Artist or Maker: Burton Morris (American, b. 1964)

Literature: Building on the legacy of Pop Art masters of the 1960's-70's, artist Burton Morris presents his personal world of popular American icons that put a delightful spin on everyday objects and motifs. In his post-Pop style, Morris boldly projects an enticing mood of happiness, high energy and fun. Morris' forbears were Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann and Red Grooms. Morris imbues his art with his own impeccable style and optimism. The artist's distinctive sword-like slashes suggesting shards of energy come from his study of woodcut prints. Two of his heroes are Albrecht Durer and Rockwell Kent. Durer used similar hatching in the sixteenth century whilst Twentieth century American artist Rockwell Kent illustrated books and designed bookplates with such lines.
