Pard Morrison in main art  Category

Colorado-based Pard Morrison is a modern day geometric abstractionist with work that is a cross between painting and sculpture. His large-scale work features blocks of color configured in a way that gives each piece an illusion of greater dimensionality. The box-like forms are created by the pieces extending from the wall by 3-1/4″ giving each piece a sculptural feel.

He fabricates each labor-intensive piece himself out of welded aluminum. Each color of pigment is fired onto the aluminum separately and must cure before moving on to the next color, very similar to how ceramics are glazed.
