Announcement   Greetings! Welcome to my shop and thank you for looking at my work!

My name is Wendy Sue Morris and I have been a working Abstract Expressionist painter for over twenty five years. After receiving my Bachelor's of Fine Art at San Diego State University, I relocated to Los Angeles where I participated in many group and solo shows, received a highly-competitive Kittredge Grant, had several of my paintings included in the set-design, emmy award-winning television shows, "Hell's Kitchen" and "Master Chef", and also had my mixed-media archival prints accepted into the prestigious Cedars Sinai art collection. Recently, after several years of traveling for inspiration, I returned to Phoenix where I now live and work. Please feel free to check out below my current artist bio as well as my artist statement which explains a bit more about my artistic impulses. Also, my personal website, wsmorrisstudio.com and Facebook link contain many more images of my body of work.

As a side note, purchasing artwork in general is a very personal experience. Purchasing artwork online doubles these personal experiences. So feel free to email me about any concerns you might have regarding any aspect of this process. Also, I would be more than happy to send you further images of any work you might be interested in.

ARTIST STATEMENT AND BIOGRAPHY

ARTIST STATEMENT
I am in pursuit of a visual solution which will best express the intangible realities lurking behind the human form. My desire as a painter is to capture what it is about us as human beings which makes us complicated and unique—namely our fragility. Therefore, in all my work realistic depictions of the human figure have been stretched and dismantled in order to portray suggestions of what lies behind the tangible. In this way, my paintings endeavor to pay homage to Abstract Expressionists such as Willem de Kooning, Arshile Gorky and Lee Krasner. However, ultimately my aim is to modify previous styles of figurative abstraction so that contemporary complexities are acknowledged.
