Each day has its own count. 

Each count is unique.

For his digital collection, entitled ‘Counts’, Morrison innumerates one number for each day, beginning on relocation back to Australia in   March 2021 and ending in March 2022. These digitized clips incorporate Cambodian, Burmese and other numeric systems from various countries he has lived and traveled.

For his paintings, Morrison sums up each and every stamped impression made with his ‘brush’ – a fresh-cut lotus stalk. Over years creating his inked artworks the artist has an accumulated total of more than half a million lotus marks.
