Morris's urban geometries

With the reopening of Duesseldorf's refurbished K20 (Kunstsammlung Nordrhein Westfalen) last summer, Sarah Morris was commissioned to cover one of their external walls with her vibrant palette and geometries.  I was thrilled to find her new work there.

Morris's works are often derived from observation of architectural details.  She uses colours and geometries that she associates with a city’s unique aesthetic vocabulary and palette.  I saw her Lesser Panda show at White Cube Mason's Yard in London 2008.  Her works at the show were focused on the city of Beijing, the site for the 2008 summer Olympic Games.
