ROBERT MORRIS. BLIND TIME DRAWINGS, 1973-2000

ROBERT MORRIS (1931-)

Born in Kansas City (Missouri) in 1931, Robert Morris is considered one of the most important artists on the international scene. In his art, which, similarly to his extensive written work, has made a substantial contribution towards defining minimalist, conceptual art, the artist uses every medium: sculpture, drawing and painting, but also film, video, performance, installations and ambient constructions (earthworks or land art).
This catalogue brings together for the first time 81 of Robert Morris's Blind Time Drawings, selected from the six series that make up the corpus of this work to which Morris has dedicated more than 30 years. The entire range is present from the early drawings of 1973 up to the Moral Drawings of 2000, with a particular emphasis on the fourth series, a group of works inspired by the writings of the philosopher Donald Davidson. Visually striking, the Blind Time Drawings, as the name implies, were executed by the artist with his eyes covered. Consisting of stark black-and-white contrasts, explosions of graphite, and obsessive markings that move organically throughout the page, the works are anything but haphazard. Morris followed a strict plan when doing the works, and his writing, which describes his process, is instrumental to understanding them. In addition, these works are placed within the context of Morris's Minimalist and Conceptualist masterpieces such as Card File (1962), Mirrored Cubes (1965) and Portland Mirrors (1977).
