This work is part of the Vera List Anniversary Print Portfolio, created in recognition of the exceptional legacy of philanthropist Vera List. It was the generosity of Vera and her husband Albert that enabled the founding of the Vera List Art Project at Lincoln Center in 1962, MIT's List Arts Center in 1982, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School in 1992, among others. These institutions joined forces with Artspace and six internationally renowned artists to produce this print portfolio.
Sarah Morris's print Total Lunar Eclipse is a beautiful example of the artist's complex geometric abstractions based on the architecture and atmosphere of urban environments. This work is based on the unique dynamic and visual vocabulary of Rio.
Morris is a painter and filmmaker who finds inspiration from architectural landscapes of the world's major cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Beijing. An observer of the vibrations and dynamism unique to each urban center, Morris' work is highly concerned with exploring the relationship between conceptual signs and physical signifiers.
