Liberty

Liberty, 2006 by Burton Morris is an original unique hand-painted acrylic on canvas.  Lady Liberty takes precedence in this piece with bold colors and graphic details to make it really pop!   It is comprised of (2) 40 x 30 inch canvases.  It is meant to be hung vertically one on top of the other as in the photo, but it can be placed side by side as well.  It is signed on the front, and titled on the back of each canvas.

Burton Morris was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1964. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree at Carnegie Mellon University in 1986. After graduation, Burton started a career as an art director in advertising. He established the Burton Morris Studios in 1990. That year he began making his small post-pop icons into large-scale paintings. He would choose one subject per composition to create what he calls “an instant happening” for the viewer. He used his background in advertising to blur the lines between high and low art.

In 1992, Absolut Vodka selected his artwork to represent Pennsylvania for its prestigious Absolut Statehood campaign. During that same year, his paintings began to hang on the hit NBC television sitcom “Friends”, which continued to showcase his artwork for over ten seasons. Morris’ work burst onto the American stage and was given international exposure in 2004, when he produced the signature image for the 76th Annual Academy Awards. The artwork enlivened the facade of the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, CA and was seen by over one billion viewers.
