“Northwestern painters still have a palpable respect for the forces of nature and a penchant for a type of mysticism that is often associated with Asian art - but the context has changed. The paintings of Lance Morrison offer examples of this shift.”
- Steven Zevitas (January, 2000)

Lance Morrison’s new paintings evoke space, volume and presence in a kind of ageless atmosphere where delicacy is also strength. Tiny hummingbirds soar in large canvases bathed in light and atmosphere. While his subject matter can be both romantic and light hearted, his bold use of light, translucent layers and texture make these pieces dramatic and akin to Redon or Rothko.
