Artist

Devin N. Morris

Devin N. Morris collapses memory and space to envision delicate new realms of existence. Informed by his upbringing in Baltimore and his personal experiences as a queer man of color, his work often portrays semi-fictive characters who exchange acts of kindness and care within surreal domestic settings. Extending his practice of collage into physical assemblage and sculpture, Morris creates site-specific environments that refract the domestic interior and subvert traditional values and social boundaries.

Devin N. Morris has exhibited work at Baltimore Museum of Art; Bass Museum, Miami; and P.P.O.W. Gallery, New York, among others.
