Paintings from Sarah Morris’ current series, Beijing, are symbolic of some of the architectural challenges that this city is facing in light of the upcoming Olympic Games in 2008. The Rings series not only connects to the Olympic rings and the event that will greatly affect Beijing, but also to the congested traffic arteries called the Ring Roads, emblematic of larger scale issues. The Origami series is based on a simple process that originated in China and that can result in increasing complexity. Both series make good use of the artist’s strength in bold colour and form, as well as hearty amounts of household paint.
