Maharam introduces five new colors of Agency by Sarah Morris. A modern interpretation of traditional tapestry, Agency’s bold geometric patterning provides an ideal framework for further color exploration. Agency by Sarah Morris is based on the artist’s 2005 painting, Creative Artists Agency (Los Angeles). The painting is part of a larger body of Los Angeles-inspired work that examines the city’s role as the center of image production.

Maharam and Morris worked together to add textural dimension through varying weave structures to the artist’s characteristically flat, glossy painting style. The combination of weave structures creates tactile and compositional variety within the repeating hexagonal design. The new color additions—including combinations of kelly greens, mints, teals, and oranges alongside rosy hues and earth tones—were created by examining Morris’ distinct color logic.
