The paintings are always coming up and down, up against the wall or down on the floor, sometimes they go up upside down or different things happen because they’re being moved or moved around the studio. This helps me see things or get ideas for other paintings. There’s all this shifting going [on], it’s not like the paintings stay statically in one place the whole time while I make them. — Rebecca Morris*
