Footnotes

  • From boyhood Morris sought inspiration from the woods and hills surrounding his home in California, where he explored caves and dug the earth in search of ancient artifacts. He has a serious interest in ancient civilisations, their primitive tools, their brutal rituals. He is a hunter who shoots deer and welk with a bow and arrow, preferring to hunt alone. Among things that have inspired him are cave drawings and as shown in this piece Stonehenge. The imagery in his works reflects these many interests and influences.
