  “I want to challenge the way we view
    everyday ideas in our modern day
  culture by representing the common
object singularly, reducing it to an iconic
 graphic form and adding an energetic
                  twist.”

             - Burton Morris
“I try to create an instant happening for
   the viewer with each composition.”

through her eyes, and think about things
                 differently.

            - Burton Morris
“Working with brands such as Coke or
