Pinafore Park, St. Thomas, Ontario.
University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario – Ontario Teachers’ Certification Fine Art (Dean’s Honour Role)
David is also active in workers’ unions. This gave him a unique perspective when he was commissioned to create a monument to workers injured or killed on the job.
David was commissioned to create the dramatic sculpture that can be seen as you enter Pinafore Park. I was determined that it should have impact and reflect the struggles of working people from all backgrounds. Pieces of the fifteen-foot high structure were individually shaped with a hammer, forged, welded and ground. Set atop aluminum posts, the figure seems to be standing watch. Less visible at first glance are the labour symbols of two hands holding the globe, and a frieze of laurel leaves representing workers’ heroism. The material is such that the sculpture changes dramatically depending upon the light. The Pinafore Park sculpture reflects my appreciation for the importance of making workplaces more predictably safe.
The Oluuc at E.M. Warwick Conservation Area
David Morris was commissioned to create a piece called “The Oluuc”.
The subject was to create a mythical creature that swam in the waters of the Great Lake.
These recent sculptors are the product of modern metals, tools and equipment, and yet, though they couldn’t be produced except in our age of mass production they sterility of mass comsumerism is absent. to produce these objects, my hand eye coordination is evident in the bending of the metals to my will.
Steps in the fabrication of these works are evident in the final pieces. The accumulation of decisions and processes remain, imparting a narrative, to be followed by the observer.
Time Interval Like Same
It includes 38 works completed mainly in the last two years. Three pieces , Tone Row of 1998, Purple Scale and Green scale, both of 1995, relates to Morris’ investigations into the role of music and art through musical tone and colour equivalents. Although his other large work, 60 piece is not part of that series it also has musical undercurrents. Currently the artist is exploring the possibilities of robotics as art, two of which are included. Throughout, all these works reveal a respect for materials and an interest in texturing and layering.
