David Morrison

Morrison's recent works raise questions about beauty. "Iconic Totems focuses on iconic objects and the roles they play in contemporary society," says the associate professor of printmaking. "The work describes beauty as it is seen by different generations." Fallen Seeds and Homage to Found Leaf, Morrison says, reorganize fallen patterns of natural objects into designs that "reexamine the beauty of nature."
