Blending precise, articulate representation with liberated abstractionism, Roland Morin’s marvelously colorful paintings are prismatic, elucidating an alchemical prosaic beauty. Primary, pure color form jigsaws through sharply balanced compositions that illustrate the inherent extraordinariness alive in the everyday, despite the myriad troubles that are intrinsic in our lives. Morin’s work is evolutionary, colorfully transcending the wearisome and the banal. Opulent, rough textures mirror the sumptuous as well as the stark moments of our rich, varied human experiences. It is easy to see that Morin’s life has influenced and encouraged his need to create and interpret the world around him in a painterly way. “There was a time in my life when I was trying to find truth about life in general and all its issues,” the artist agrees. Having found a deep religious Christian conviction, Morin’s art became vigorously energetic with color. This background gives his works a spiritual element, as the art remains delicate in its strong inspiration.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Roland Morin is a lifelong artist. He lives and works in North Carolina.
