Locky Morris is an Irish contemporary artist and musician, born in Derry City, where he continues to live and work. Renowned for his early work that explicitly dealt with the conflict in Northern Ireland, he has gone on to develop another working vocabulary that touches on a broad range of subjects, from the highly personal and familial to the political. Still reflecting on the complexities and intricacies of his immediate environment this work extends across photography, found objects, installation, text, sound and video. In addition to his gallery-based practice Morris has also made numerous and large-scale works and interventions in the public realm. His work has also been influenced by his active musicianship.
