Nick Morley’s World of Wonder 16th April - 13th May 2011
With his current exhibition at Material, Nick Morley brings his discerning eye and unique humour to the world of discovery, exploration and adventure. The exhibition draws inspiration from dusty museums, science textbooks, National Geographic and the pioneer spirit of the likes of Jacques Cousteau & Ernest Shackleton.
As an illustrator Nick has worked for The Times and Icon magazine and has produced book covers for Penguin, Faber & Faber and Folio Society. His fascination with old imagery in books and magazines has influenced his own practice which is grounded in drawing and encompasses prints, text works, drawings and artist books.
Look out for Nick's new book covers for penguin or have a sneak peak here and don't forget to come and see the show.
