Party Cut by Rebecca Morris

Rebecca Morris invites us on a journey through the inner workings of her studio in her latest show Party Cut, which is on view at Corbett vs. Dempsey until October 19th. The exhibition showcases various fluid drawings ranging from this year back to her graduate work at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the 90s. In these pieces Morris examines the interaction between color, pattern, and gesture.  Each exploration retains its own fresh personality among the cast of characters. 

Party Cut also features recent paintings that have incorporated bits and pieces of her drawings while also developing the relationship between them. Morris creates a space for the elements of her drawings to mingle on the picture plane, their interactions recorded in thick oil and spray paint. The work in Party Cut embodies the celebration of shapes rocking out through their own milieu.
