Furnace Brook and the Ochreous Stain. Canvas and hand-made paper 120x140cm 

Mary Morris is an artist living and working in East Sussex. She uses a wide variety of media, including textiles and ceramics. Her practice relates to landscape and place, investigating an area through the lens of a collector, unearthing found and made objects, stories and anecdotes.

Woodland Quartet. Painted and printed papers, wood 20x20x8cm 

Time spent building a familiarity with an area, absorbing the sights, sounds and surroundings is of paramount importance. The topography, geology, history and land usage past and present all play a major part in her work which ranges in scale and scope from large wall-hung pieces to small individual or multiple items.

Her work is often book-like in structure or in the form of a collection or archive and may include text. She has taken part in many group and solo exhibitions and has also worked on collaborative projects with other artists.
