Danny Morse uses painting, photography and sculpture to playfully construct visual witticisms. Morse has often used found objects in his work, whether presented as is or in some way altered. It is a technique that was brought to modernism through the surrealist ‘objet trouve’ and was supposed to be a real thing that through its strangeness or ‘marvelousness’pierced the everyday drudgery of life and pointed to another zone of possibility, ‘the surreal’.
