Danny Olda on Pard Morrison:

The work of artist Pard Morrison seems to reference both the analog and the digital at once.  His hard edged fields of color are reminiscent of image pixels or two dimensional mock ups of some sort.  Morrison often contrasts these blocks of color with a natural landscape barely touched by technology.  His work addresses how experience is increasingly mediated by technology – how a three-dimensional landscape is increasingly lived in two dimensions.  While these pixels and blocks build many images we experience everyday, they also can hide and obfuscate them.
