Biography / CV of Deedee Morrison

Deedee Morrison has been working as a professional studio and public artist for over 10 years working on public art. Her experience includes a broad spectrum of commissioned work and public art planning and development. She believes that sculpture site planning should incorporate the nuances of the land, the specific environment and/or any unique cultural features that will contextualize the onsite art. Deedee thoroughly researches every project to better understand the character of the site and the best potential uses, that inspire creativity and innovation.

Deedee`s past experiences have facilitated an integrated approach to art planning which emphasizes active collaborations and partnerships with design teams, landscape architects, architects, engineers and the community as a whole. She understands the big picture, and knows the importance of client and public involvement and the critical effect it has on the planning process and the project deliverable and outcome.

Deedee trained as a development economist. Her focus was not only on methods of structural economic change, but also on improving the potential for the mass of population. It is this same desire to facilitate improving potential that led her to be a welder and an artist who seeks to create by cutting and re-fabricating steel and aluminum and integrating them with elements of very large stone.

Her studio sits on the outskirts of a quarry from which the stone has been cut from nature and changed into different forms. She seeks in her work to represent this constant change of not only metal and stone, but also the change of people, nature and indeed life itself. She use water and illumination themes to reflect the human need for security and safe harbor in the storm of life. But at the same time that which is tethered in security retains the potential to be set free: in nature, in life and in the immutable world of the spiritual.

Art has value because it affords potential to provoke emotion, soulful thought, glimpses of beauty and realization of those things larger than ourselves. Interaction with sculpture is a tactile experience that allows one the potential to explore intellectually and emotionally, to engage, to enjoy.

Artist Statement of Deedee Morrison

Dee Dee Morrison`s unique style has evolved that reflect the artistʼs understanding of the nature, by using heavy industrial metals and laser jet cutting methods to create solar powered sculptures. By necessity, nature has solved many of the problems we are currently facing in our physical and built environments. Morrison attempts to imitate the design principles that exist in the world to create sustainable solutions with art, by mimicking the patterns and strategies found in nature.
