Rebecca Morris  (American, 1969) 

whitespace
Rebecca Morris (American, b.1969) is a Contemporary painter, and a native of Honolulu, HI. She received her BA from Smith College, her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and attended The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Known for her large-scale works, Morris creates canvases of disconnected, freely-floating shapes, and is a strong advocate for abstract painting, as outlined in her 2004 manifesto, Abstraction never left, motherfuckers. In 2005, she was the subject of a major solo show at the Renaissance Society. In 2008, she was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship; other accolades include awards from The California Community Foundation (2013), The City of Los Angeles (2013), Tiffany Foundation (1999), The Durfee Foundation (2005), Art Matters (1996), the Illinois Arts Council (1996), and The Faculty Lecturer/ Performer Award at Pasadena City College (2009). She was also featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial.

Morris lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
