Concretion is a fully abstract work based upon the relationship of colored forms in an undefined space. Unified by an earth-tones palette and similar shapes, lively biomorphic forms are arranged to maintain a rhythmic and harmonic balance.

Morris associated with avant-garde Parisian artists like Picasso during the 1930s before becoming one of Modernism's earliest and most articulate spokesmen in America.
