Jeff Morris has dedicated a substantial portion of his artistic practice to drawing. Works such as Untitled 020610 and Untitled 080610 comprise series of striations that build up textural depth. Despite their outwardly nonrepresentational imagery, Morris’s compositions are the result of his desire to explore memories or experiences visually. For example, Untitled 020610 and Untitled 080610 were inspired by seeing a plastic bag snagged in a chain-link fence being whipped around violently by the wind and passing traffic.
