Steven Morris is an American figurative abstract painter with a surrealistic vision. His paintings fall within the lineage of the New York School of Abstract Expressionist and European Surrealist painters, as defined by artists such as Willem De Kooning, Mark Rothko, Nicolas Carone and Robert Motherwell. Like these artists, Steven explores both the real and unseen worlds that inhabit the human experience.
His works celebrate the underlying human mysteries of belonging, separation, and the relationship to the natural world. There is an otherworldly quality to his paintings that evoke scenes of dreamlike narritives.
He paints out of his San Diego-based studio overlooking Lopez Canyon Preserve.
