Gabe Morton-Cook is an artist creating abstract and semi-abstract paintings from his home studio in Binghamton, New York.


Alien yet familiar abstract works. Painted from digitally manipulated photos of slot canyons, the result is forms that are clearly natural and real, yet completely unrecognizable and unidentifiable. The process for these paintings can be seen in this timelapse video.


The wearing down of a surface by friction, attrition, grinding, abrasion.

This series celebrates the beauty of decay and the harmony that always emerges over time, even from moments of intense friction.


Geometric grids create a sense of perspective, while intuitive bold brush strokes evoke frenetic excitement.
