Morris- “I am inspired by the iconic images of my childhood in Ballarat. Australian symbols like ‘Hoges’, GT Falcons and Monaros permeated every fibre of my being. I still remember staring in awe at my father’s friend’s sparkly green speedboat named ‘anyhow…..’. This exhibit is comprised of recent paintings by Nick Morris.

These images, along with cartoons, pop stars and religious icons, were my childhood landscape. I also loved the random patterns and textures of all the stickers on the wardrobe in my room. Some half ripped off and others half-stuck over another. These symbols and aesthetics form the basis of my art.
