Ricardo Morin Oil Painting on Linen Affixed to Board "Still Thirty-four"
An oil painting on linen affixed to board titled Still Thirty-four from the Metaphors of Silence series by contemporary artist Ricardo Morin (Venezuela/New York b. 1954). Executed in 2012, this work depicts an abstract composition of reds, oranges, and yellows on a blue background. The composition is reminiscent of a Rorschach test. To the verso, the series name, artist, medium, and year are present in black ink. Hanging hardware is not included with this piece.
Morin immigrated to the United States from Venezuela in 1972. Based in New York and New Jersey, Morin 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 exhibit a combination of linear delineation and fluidity. For more information about the artist, see the link below.
