The judge for the 2016 Bluff Park Art Show is DeeDee Morrison, a nationally recognized contemporary metals sculptor with large art installations in sixteen states across America as well as in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Morrison is working on the forefront of creating large-scale solar powered and LED light sculptures to communicate public priorities and vision.
As a sculptor and installation artist, Morrison says her work has been influenced by an interest in biological forms and light; coupled with the interest in the natural world and a fascination for technical and scientific advances. As a result, she has developed a unique style using heavy industrial metals, laser jet cutting methods and organically inspired intricate designs to create solar powered sustainable sculptures.
Morrison’s studio is on-site at the Wade Sand and Gravel quarry in Birmingham, Alabama. She received a degree in Economics from The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. She later studied welding at Bessemer State College and began to work as a sculptor. Morrison focuses on large- scale works created for architectural, urban, or landscape settings.
