Description:  In addition to creating steel sculptures such as Untitled, artist Ivan Morrison creates mixed media paintings and drawings. This sculpture seems to blend the mediums, rendering two-dimensional fields of color in a three-dimensional form. "My work is a world of beauty. It is how I imagine life. It is in my imagination of hopes and dreams. No matter if it is stainless steel sculpture or paintings or works on paper. My world is full of color." Morrison's work can be found in the permanent collections of The Denver Art Museum; The Coos Art Museum, Coos Bay; and the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Salem.
