George Morrison has the distinction of being the only Native American artist that has been recognized as an American artist. He abstract style was nurtured at the Student Art League in New York City, where he was a participant during the 1940s. Although he has chosen to work in an abstract style, he has drawn from his childhood memories of growing up on the northern banks of Lake Superior. Often his work references the horizon line, a powerful connection to the land, the water and the sky.
The horizon line as a recurring theme provides structure and identity to his work and has become his signature.
