Joe Morris

United Kingdom

Joe Morris' work is both ancient and contemporary, drawing upon pre-history to explore not only the first origins of art but also what it really means to be an artist today. The underlying patterns and symmetries of Britain's remote, wild landscapes help to provide Joe with an endless source of inspiration; particularly the natural "rhythms" of the seasons, the archaeological traces of ancient cultures, or even the wires and highways of the modern world, which occasionally slice through. 'Universal Geometries' are also a strong influence, and Joe's choice of Tadelakt as an artistic medium – drawing or carving patterns into the material with simple tools, then finely polishing it into stone-like surface by hand – results in an engaging, tactile appeal to each unique piece.
