RhetoricHaystack's Profile Picture
J. Travis Morton
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
J. Travis Morton is an artist from Charleston, West Virginia, specializing in acrylic paintings on wrapped canvas. Stylistically influenced by early 20th century Art Deco designs, Meso-American and Celtic motifs, and modern hard edge painters such as Karl Benjamin, Frank Stella, Charmion Von Wiegand, Bob Pepper, and Paul Klee. Self-educated, Travis hand draws each design with no straight-edge, no compass; all freehand. All edges painted by hand with no masking whatsoever. Steady precision of line and shape are hallmarks of Travis' work. His use of color is also highly experimental, with combinations that vibrate, and metallics that shine.
I'm excited to report that my artwork was accepted into the Inaugural Apartment Earth Juried Exhibition! Two of my paintings were chosen, and you can see them and many other great artworks beginning February 18th, in Downtown Charleston, West Virginia! Here are the two entries:

Mach Stem : 16x20, acrylic on canvas
Mach Stem by RhetoricHaystack

Javelina : 11x14, acrylic on canvas

Here is the official release list of the artists who were accepted:
