Morris, an American artist, who in the 1980s got her inspiration from the rising interest in the Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 1930s she began producing paintings and watercolors that were compatible with that style.
With her own identifiable style, she became very successful, and with the production of lithographs she was able to reach a wide audience. Her original works are rare to find.
I met Robin in the 1980s when we had a gallery on Melrose Ave. This was before she began producing lithographs. We sold several original works by her in those years.
From her website:
It is often said that an artist reveals themselves through their creations.
For Robin Morris, her paintings are her observations of life, stylized, playful, and yet challenging to the viewer. Her emotions are hidden beneath layers of color and pattern.
“It is contradiction that I enjoy most about my work; reality and imagination juxtaposed with a touch of humor.”
Stepping into the public eye in 1982, with the publication of her first lithograph, The Couple, the fifty editions, that followed firmly established her in the artistic community and enhanced her broad-based commercial appeal.
From canvas to ceramics to sculpture to tapestries to paper goods, her highly sophisticated images have appeared on everything from Radio City Music Hall covers to commissions from Coca-Cola and Bloomingdales. Shirts, jackets, posters, note cards and shopping bags are just a few of the commercial applications that have achieved widespread recognition and captivated the public's interest in her art.
This fascination with Robin Morris's creations can be noted with sold out shows worldwide and the inclusion of her internationally acclaimed work in the permanent collection of several museums. She continues to evolve, constantly examining new frontiers for her artwork.
"Robin has always looked for the beauty in life and has succeeded in elevating our lives through her extraordinary artwork.” (Friends)
