Paul Morrison was born in 1966 in Liverpool. In 1998 he graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma and an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College of Art. Since his first solo exhibition in London in 1996, Morrison has exhibited internationally in numerous museums and public galleries.
Morrison is best known for his large monochromatic botanical landscapes that are at once both familiar and foreign. Whilst the trees, flora, and their natural surroundings are immediately recognisable, the individual elements are often disproportionate in size: a dandelion becomes threatening due to its immense size; a huge tree is shrunk down to the miniature. Morrison takes his inspiration from a wide range of references including Renaissance woodcuts, botanical illustration, Pop Art, and cartoons, to create abstracted and complex visions of landscape. He lives and works in London.
