With his neutral, grey, block-shaped sculptures (one is displayed in gallery 36), Morris was one of the most important American Minimalist artists of the 1960s. In addition to these geometric forms, he also made sculptures which have an extremely formless appearance because of the materials employed, such as heaps of jumbled felt strips. In other pieces, by contrast, he subjected the stiff textile material to a strict order, as in this wall sculpture.
