Respect for contemporary science and medicine, together with the research necessary in Morris’ proposal of The Viral Sublime, has taken her into laboratories and instigated collaborations with scientists. These partnerships have a profound effect on her imagination and the decisions she makes in painting. Using layers of oil glaze on birch panels, the Tondo Series draws from ideas of the petri dishes used in laboratories. Primarily Morris' oil paintings rely on inner methods led by what are often subconscious images and thoughts of the body at a micro level. The use of colour is more intuitive than formulaic, and mark making, a gesture that embodies her imagination’s relationship with she experiences within the body.
Based in: London
Suzi Morris is a Scottish artist based in London. In 2013 having been awarded a scholarship she went on to complete an MA in Fine Art at the City & Guilds of London Art School followed by a Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at UEL. Morris’ paintings act as tropes of the creative process in their addition and removal of multiple layers of glaze, which leave behind an uncanny culmination of thoughts on the body at a cellular level. An affiliation with Imperial College, London, affords her a deeper understanding of the future of gene editing as genomic medicine enters mainstream healthcare. Seeking to expand the dialogue between science, medicine, and art to initiate change in society’s perceptions of disease, Morris has just been selected to represent the new Institute of Infection, Imperial College, London at The Great Exhibition 2022.
