Collage IX: Landscape
George Morrison 1919-2000
|Location:||Minneapolis Institute of Arts|
This is just a small portion of a collage which is exhibited at the art institute. The artist, now deceased, was the former husband of Hazel Belvo, an artist and teaching colleague of mine at St. Paul Academy, a school in which we both used to teach.
Minnesota artist, and a member of the Anishinabe from the Grand Portage Reservation, George Morrison, who for many years belonged to a circle of Abstract Expressionist painters in New York, explored the medium of sculpture using traditional materials. For this driftwood collage, he drew both the material and the imagery, with its subtle horizon line, from the shore of Lake Superior. (Credit: ArtsConnected)
