About Paul Morrison

Paul Morrison makes bold, black-and-white, fantastical landscape paintings, wall drawings, sculptures, and animations, culling imagery from a range of periods and genres that encompasses Disney cartoons, botanical illustrations, and Northern Renaissance woodcuts. Morrison digitally manipulates his source materials, projecting the final images onto a canvas or the gallery wall and then tracing and filling in the projected image with black acrylic paint. In 2009 Morrison worked with Paragon Press in London to create “Calathidium,” a series of botanical screen prints for an exhibition at the Horticultural Society of New York.

British, b. 1966
