Artist Statement of Gail MorrisGail Morris began her career working with abstract construction in metal. After a visit to the United States she became fascinated with the work of Gonzalez began exploring the possibilities of incorporating forged elements in her work. This work with the forge lead to a change in subject matter and to further studies. At St. Martins she studied the figure, and the body in movement. It was at this point she was introduced to stone as a material and began to work with traditional carving methods. As a natural process of development she began to combine this knowledge creating the combination of forged metal constructed within, through and around carved stone.
She have been working on how light passes through the material. Time, placement and the passage of the sun`s light play an important role in the sculptures of this period. How light penetrates into the interior how it changes and the internal space created. Light and space as a mass in movement, within and through a stationary form.
Duality is a constantly returning theme in her work. Two objects, not physically connected but sharing some sort of dialogue. An action, a look or a space causes a communication from one to the other. The viewer is no longer the second person in a two way conversation but has become a third party, the observer, one step removed.
