Drawing from the autobiographical, Duncan Morris’s practice involves a fascination with the intangible phenomenon that occurs when our inner world appears to overlay our perception of the outer world. Using rhythmic mark making, lurid colours and ambiguous perspective, his paintings are characterised by a dynamic crowding of composition, most often depicting interior scenes. Infused with allusions to mythology, folklore and poetry alongside references to modernist artists such as Morandi, De Chirico and Guston, each painting is a journey, an attempt to find a concise yet visually poetic resolution to the dilemma of perception, reality, memory and dreams.

Morris's work is held in private collections in the UK, France, the USA, Germany and Sweden. He has exhibited with Van Gogh House, London; PZ Gallery, Penzance; Temwa Art for Africa, Bristol.
