Morris painted at Papunya Tula and held his first solo exhibition last autumn. It received much acclaim, with all his work selling out! It was a fitting end to a 25 year career, Morris sadly passed away shortly afterwards.
Aside from his thrilling figurative and abstract work, Morris was know as an indomitable figure - even losing both his legs was said not to slow him down - 'a busy man with much to do!'. He contributed to the Kintore Men’s painting which was sold at the Western Desert Dialysis appeal event in Sydney in 2000. The money raised helped to establish a new model of dialysis care in the Country. He didn’t know at the time he would need our services himself.
