Jamie Morrison’s work expresses the beauty often already found within the natural world and the commonly overlooked. He aims to bring this beauty to the viewers’ attention through installation art work. He commonly achieves this by bringing nature into man-made structures for the viewer to enjoy and experience. He has previously constructed a large terrarium room as part of his graduate degree show.
This work utilises the power of the ‘white cube’ gallery space; placing it within nature to frame natural beauty. The installation provides an intimate, personal and biotropic experience of the tree surrounded by the white cube backdrop, in an attempt to alter or change our perception towards the natural world.
