Kevin Morris is a Kansas City based representational artist. A colorist with a strong commitment to form and light, Morris combines direct observation and expressive color to create representations that juxtapose planes of flattened space with realistic images that convey depth and plays of light.
While Morris does not have formal training in art or design, he studies art closely, borrowing from the techniques and habits of the nabis, fauvist, and pop art movements. He is interested in giving presence, depth, and space to small, seemingly insignificant, ephemeral things such as flowers, bugs, or interior scenes of domestic life.
Morris works out of his home studio in Overland Park where his family, their cats, and their home provide energy and inspiration for his work.
