About my artwork
Edward Morris works and lives in Nottingham and spends his time creating his work between his 2 studios, 1 which is near the centre of Nottingham, which is larger than the studio in the loft of his house. This creates an interesting dialogue in his practice between the work produced in the 2 spaces as scale of his work is often increased significantly in the studio away from his house. His work is now progressing at a rapid rate as he is now completely focused on his art after retiring from the rat race. His current series of paintings/drawings, "hypochondria drawings", are influenced primarily by the different daily aches and pains that he feels, or at least believe that he feels! However, they also reflect upon his previous series of work surrounding scientific research in to the possible, and increasingly probable, existence of parallel universes. In this series he is drawing maps which start with his aches and pains, borrow from the M-theory, and steal from my subconscious, as well as drawing inspiration from Lousie Bourgeois's “Insomnia” drawings. Further images of this work will be uploaded on to this page soon, and any feedback will be greatly appreciated. If you have any interest in purchasing any of the work shown on here please contact the artist for further details and pricing via this website.

Hello again, sorry it has been so long. I'm very taken with the paintings 'piss poorly' and 'horseshoe kidney'. The more recent paintings (added July 9) are interesting from a painterly perspective, but I find the works listed above to be more resolved. Perhaps you were breaking away from this level of finish with the new works. The (more recent) application of the paint gives a contrast that feels uncomfortable but not unwelcome. It's good territory. I'm in Nottingham regularly - if you're showing anywhere I would love to see your work in reality. Best regards, Mark

The fight goes on, well its not a fight really we have just siad fuck you Mr building owner we are out of here, we dont want your refurbed smaller more expensive spaces. So the scouts are out(not those silly uniformed ones) looking for a new space and well maybe we have found just the thing, not 60 seconds walk from the market Sq, just a question of getting rid of the pigeon shit so we can get in there to have a look around.
