Morgan Sims

Morgan Sims makes paintings and neon sculptures which playfully manipulate color and light.

Sims' paintings process and distort symbols and images into near abstraction, retaining just enough of the image to retain a rudimentary recognition. He thoughtfully extends the reach of methods such as pixillation, halftoning, and patterning through manual means which humanizes the painting so that there is a warmth and handmade quality.

Sims' neon sculptures extend these manipulations into three dimensions, using both spatial expansion and constraints to define presence. The bright colors of the glowing tubes of neon light pulse with life and subtle movement. Their shapes, made by bending and shaping the glass, emphasizing the handmade while remaining fully contemporary.
