Ricardo Morin Abstract Ink and Watercolor Painting on Paper
An unframed abstract ink and watercolor painting on paper by Venezuelan-born artist Ricardo Morin (b. 1954), dated 2003. This work features curving lines and forms delineated in black and juxtaposed against a cloudy background of bleeding grays, blacks, blues, and hints of red. Some lines and shapes are shaded with splotches of gradated black. The work is signed and dated in orange to the lower right. The composition remains unframed and unmounted.
Morin immigrated to the United States from Venezuela in 1972. Based in New York and New Jersey, he received his B.F.A. from the State University of New York at Buffalo and his M.F.A. at Yale University. His work has been exhibited at multiple institutions including the Bronx Museum of the Arts; the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York; the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts in Brooklyn, New York; and many others. He is most well-known for his non-objective abstract paintings that often exhibit a combination of linear delineation and spontaneous fluidity.
