Paul Morrison (born 1966) is a British Artist. He is known for his use of found imagery from botanical, cartoon, film and art historical sources. Morrison manipulates and edits the appropriated images producing powerfully disquieting scenes that often reference landscape painting. Emphatic shifts in scale and pictorial language underscore the unsettling mood in his work which ranges from paintings, sculptures and prints to films and vast site-specific wallpaintings.
