For Morris, language is, quite literally, a construct. She’s invented her own painted dialect which looks and sounds somewhere between the synthetic snarl of scrolling computer code and a political declaration. The gathering of ideas is as regimented as the execution, and it all begins with plucking phonetics from sentences and plotting coordinates.

A portrait of Sarah Morris sitting in her studio

Sarah Morris (b. 1967, London, U.K.) is an internationally recognized painter and filmmaker, known for her complex abstractions, which play with architecture and the psychology of urban environments. Morris views her paintings as parallel to her films - both trace urban, social and bureaucratic topologies. In both these media, she explores the psychology of the contemporary city and its architecturally encoded politics. Morris studied at Brown University where she received a BA in 1989, and at Cambridge. She was a participant in the Whitney Independent Study Program.

Sarah Morris lives and works in New York and London. She received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painting Award in 2001, and in 1999-2000 was an American Academy Award Berlin Prize Fellow.

She has exhibited extensively internationally, with solo exhibitions at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China (2018); Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo, Finland (2017); Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2016); Museum Leuven, Leuven (2015); Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris (2014); Kunsthalle Bremen, Bremen (2013); the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio (2012); Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna (2009); Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2009); Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel (2008); the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2006); Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2005); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2005); Kestner Gesellschaft, Hannover (2005); Kunstforeningen, Copenhagen (2004); Miami MOCA (2002); Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C. (2002); and Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2001).
