“John Morris: Paintings on Panel,” D’Amelio Terras, New York, NY. Through Feb. 3.
Selected by ArtCal as a top pick last week, John Morris, who is known primarily for work on paper that features built up surfaces and repetitive forms reflecting his fascination with systems and patterns, has created a series of paintings on wood. Small and translucent universes made up of grids, dots and patterns reference patterns from nature, music notations, and economic systems. Originally from NYC, John has been in Pittsburgh for the past few years where he founded the Digging Pitt Gallery. A Pierogi flatfile alumnus, John’s gallery developed a flatfile for Pittsburgh artists. Unfortunately, the gallery will be closing at the end of the month. Check out Heart as Arena, where Brent Burket visits Digging Pitt’s last exhibition, The Blogger Show.
