About the piece

Morgan Sim's paintings start with ideas explored by 1970s hard-edge Op Art. His alternative to the pristine surfaces and clean solids of this tradition are modified and enhanced by the use of distressed and organically worked surfaces. Like his predecessors, he starts with a simple, geometric-shaped, linen canvas, and generates a dimensional illusion with line and color. Sims then avoids the temptation to seek perfection, instead introducing layers of striated color and texture that highlight a tension between the underlying geometry and the propensity towards decay of all physical objects.
