ALEX MORRISON’s art engages a pre-modern architecture and design history, incorporating moments from art deco, utopian architecture and interior design to inform his work. His recent work is produced through the use of 3D modeling and software rendering in which Morrison seeks to address the cultural persistence of ‘craft’ aesthetics and reference the revival of the Arts and Crafts movement. The work finds its aesthetics located somewhere between commercial display, storybook architecture and domestic furniture. The endless re-purposability of his selected material emphasizes the work’s linguistic quality. They are objects of signification pointing at something beyond themselves.
