Artwork Details

 Here British artist Paul Morrison has created an enormous mural on the 10 by 20-meter white exterior wall of a prominent rest area in the museum complex.
 The painting is a black-and-white contemporary landscape taking as its motif the role of the apple tree in myth. Morrison deliberately chose a monochromatic palette that allows the viewer to imagine and project their own sense of coloration onto the work.
 Drawing inspiration from sources that range from popular cartoons to botanical drawings to Renaissance woodcuts, Morrison creates his graphic assemblages by manipulating found images. Despite being fictional, the resulting hybrid landscapes seem to reflect their natural surroundings.
