Known for pioneering the Minimalist movement of the '60s, Robert Morris shifted his style in the 1980s to express a darker, apocalyptic vision. "A sense of doom has gathered on the horizon of our perceptions and grows every day," Morris wrote in 1981, linking the doom to "returning nightmares of nuclear war." This print reflects his bleak view of the future but also conveys both the horror and beauty of death.Read Less
About the Artist
About Robert Morris
In addition, Morris contributed to the development of performance art, land art, Process art, and installation art. His work in the 1970s was characterized by the use of ephemeral and experimental materials to create impermanent sculptures that challenged the physicality of the art object. His style changed in the 1980s when he returned to drawing and painting, integrating them with sculpture to produce dark, apocalyptic visions.
Although much of Morris's greatest work no longer physically exists due to its transient quality, it lives on as a contribution to the history of art in photographs and written documentation.Read Less
