Chimerical Sculptures by John Morris
The works of John Morris spring from exhaustive sketching and illustration, drawing on intensive research. Subjects include skeletal bone, muscular structure and the imagery of fashion photography. Often, prosthetic limbs and super-accentuated body part proportions tie the pieces together, bringing to mind the surreal imagery of anime and the comic strip depictions of superheroes and heroines. He skilfully uses leather, brass, and stainless steel to provide stark contrasts with the warm texture of the wood.
