Paul Morrison is a British Artist. He is known for his use of modified appropriated images from botanical, cartoon, film and art historical sources. Morrison collages and manipulates found images producing powerfully disquieting scenes that often reference landscape painting. Emphatic shifts in scale and pictorial language underscore the unsettling mood in his work which ranges from intimate paintings and prints to films and vast site-specific wallpaintings. Sculpture is also an integral part of Morrison’s practice. Large format three-dimensional metal works emphasise the pictorial and appear to dematerialise as the viewer circles the work. The delicacy of the outlines often belies their overwhelming physical size and weight.
