Orville Morris is a naturalist, artist, and a collector of leaves, pine cones, and flowers. His rugged style and botanical themes document and witness the constant change of annual cycles. Orville has lived in many places across the country. His art conjures memories of plants, neighborhoods, and seasonal weather from the Midwest, Southeast, Southwest, and of course the Pacific Northwest. In each drawing, he captures a moment or day from each passing season, and encodes it with a distinct numerical system. Orville goes a step beyond dating his art, adding the next few dates on the calendar. These numbers are sometimes accompanied by his current age, as well as the age he will be turning on his next birthday. In his own unique way, Orville is constantly keeping track of time, archiving constant cycles of change by locating his artistic creations somewhere between past and present.
