CONTEMPORARY ARTS INSPIRED BY ROBERT BURNS

25 January - 10 March 2018 @ Summerhall, Edinburgh

Paul Morrison

Paul Morrison was born in 1966 in Liverpool and lives and works in Yorkshire. Morrison graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1998 and has since developed an international reputation through major museum exhibitions and commissions. His solo institutional projects to date include: Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art, the Las Vegas Art Museum, Bloomberg Space in London, Kunsthalle Nürnburg, Magasin Grenoble, The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, the Aspen Art Museum, and UCLA’s Hammer Museum of Art, among others.

Morrison’s highly recognisable work is characterised by monochromatic botanical visions. Morrison consciously shifts scales and takes inspiration from timeworn engravings, botanical illustrations, comics, animations and found images, thus creating his unique brand of modified appropriated images.
