Alex Morrison was born in Redruth, UK and currently lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Subcultures, activism, rebellion, the history of domestic architecture, civic spaces and avant-garde aesthetics have been persistent themes in his work for over a decade. His drawings, paintings, videos, sculptures and installations reveal a preoccupation with the vernacular and a critique of the universalizing aspects of Modernism’s trajectory. He combines the aesthetics of craft with the language of protest, looking at subculture alongside legacies of colonialism and religious power. Morrison’s work has been exhibited at White Columns (New York), La Plage (Paris), the Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver), Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff), the Vancouver Art Gallery, Artspeak (Vancouver), and others. His work is collected by the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, Museum Abteiberg (Germany), Zabludowicz Collection (London), and numerous other public and private collections.
