Wayne Morris

Ever since I was a kid I collected stuff – from the beach, from the bush, and from the dump. My childhood was spent living not far from a dump. I was as interested in what I could find in our local dump and much to my parents horror lots of it I brought home. I am attracted to the textures, the shapes and the idea that what I use has already had a life and been used by others albeit for very different purposes. My first exhibition in 1981 as a founding member of the Taranaki Artists Cooperative [TACO] was assembled from found materials and so it has continued through numerous exhibitions to this day. The polite term for this is now ‘found art’ or ‘art from found materials’.
