Ricardo Morin Abstract Mixed Media Painting on Newspaper
An unframed mixed media painting on newspaper by Venezuelan-born artist Ricardo Morin (b. 1954). Comprised of ink, white-out, and oil paint on a newspaper page from the New York Times, this non-objective abstract work features a combination of bleeding splotches of color, splattered pigment, and delineated outlines. Scattered throughout the composition are curving lines delineated in black pigment and white-out. Smudges of color and gestural brushstrokes in green, yellow, blue, and purple are painted throughout the surface of the newspaper. No signature, title, or date was found on the work and it remains unframed.
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.
