James Morrison spent his childhood in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, and this formative period has been hugely influential in his development as an artist. His subject is nature - an intense, slightly malevolent version that befits the environment of his youth. The stories and myths from his Papua New Guinea experience have shaped his thinking as an artist, in particular in the way he merges the natural world with the imaginary and the mythic. One aspect of Morrison's practice involves the creation of small, moulded paper objects. These fragile constructions sit between drawing and sculpture.
