Annie Morris’ sculptures are towers shaped from plaster and sand, painted with raw pigment to resemble a three-dimensional artist’s palette. Inspired by human strength overcoming life’s obstacles and struggles, Morris chooses to focus on the hopefulness and vibrancy of life. Each element is hand-crafted, organic in feel, and deliberately imprecise, highlighting the human touch. The seemingly weightless forms are a metaphor for perseverance and the ability to conquer the impossible. Each sphere teeters over the other, threatening to fall, yet gently supporting each other’s balance. These sculptures appear to defy gravity, evocative of planets colliding in the solar system.
Since completing her degree from École des Beaux-Arts Paris, Morris has exhibited at The Royal Academy, London; The Fine Art Society, London; Baku MoMA, Azerbaijan, The New Art Gallery, Walsall and Tate Gallery, St Ives.
