Deedee Morrison is a sculptor and installation artist based in Birmingham, AL, whose work juxtaposes the man-made and the natural world. She creates large public works made of aluminum, steel, limestone, and solar powered light. The forms of her sculpture are inspired by the geometric patterns found in the natural world. By imitating design principles that exist in nature and harvesting the sun’s energy Morrison wants to inspire an interest in sustainability. Her sculptures have been exhibited and installed in permanent displays nationwide. One of her pieces is on view at the Hazel and Jimmy Sanders Sculpture Garden at Delta State University and she recently installed public sculptures in Colorado and California.
