About the Artist

Frank Morris 1928–1970

Irish artist Frank Morris studied architecture at Dublin Institute of Technology before turning to sculpture. In 1960 Morris married the painter Camille Souter and moved to Co. Wicklow, where they set up their home and studio White Pier’. Morris taught at St Columba’s College, Rathfarnham, from the late 1960s. One of his pupils, and later his apprentice, Michael Warren described Morris’s approach to sculpture as the gradual removal of layers of wood to uncover an essential form at the core.
