Morris’ paintings are stories or myths that represent a condition, desire or place, making use of material to represent a conflict, breath, scream or silence; and manipulating the surface to work against the traditional forms of practice.

Morris’ paintings are stories or myths that represent a condition, desire or place, making use of material to represent a conflict, breath, scream or silence; and manipulating the surface to work against the traditional forms of practice.

‘There is evidence here on the surface, there is a truth unfurling, and the only way to discover it is to keep working. To keep digging, and,  as Hélène Cixous says, “Walking through the self toward the dark.” I think of my paintings as stories or myths that represents a condition, desire or  place. I use the material to represent a conflict, breath, scream or silence. Manipulating the surface to work against the traditional  forms of practice. Moving beyond the ideas of what we associate with medium, I am working against the capitalist clock. Trying my best to let a version of truth reveal itself into a vision.’ — h. e. morris
