Project Overview


Guthrie Contemporary Gallery

Limestone and Aluminum with LED lighting

12' x 8 'x 6'

The creation of the Charm series of sculptures begins with a 3,000 lb. limestone rock that has been harvested from the Wade Sand and Gravel quarry. The sculptor uses a laser cutting processes with the aluminum to introduce light and a sense of weightlessness into the piece.   Symbols in the sculpture, such as these unevenly balanced ‘charms,’ are attached to the limestone rock and ask ‘What am I tethered to and what sustains me?" Morrison's work evokes a sense of extreme contrasts through the creation of bulky sculptures made of metal and boulders that are intricately balanced with hand wrought chains to create a sense of the weight and fragility of balance.
