George Morrison let serendipity play a role in his wood collage. Inspired by Lake Superior’s North Shore, he scoured beaches on the East Coast and elsewhere for his materials, viewing what he found as gifts yielded by the waters. Following his strong feeling for landscape, he placed a horizon line about a quarter of the way below the top. Space left between the pieces of wood gives the illusion of a carved line, which lends a sculptural quality. However, Morrison always insisted that his collages are paintings made of wood.
