Sean Morris – Return to Doom Lagoon

Australian artist Sean Morris is over in Europe this week to open his new solo show at Watdafac Gallery in Madrid on Thursday 18th April.

“Return To Doom Lagoon” is a show of new prints, sketches and murals by Morris. It’s a continuation of the character-based strangeness that he has has gained a reputation for – this time we are introduced to the girls of ‘Doom Lagoon’ and their colourful, mildly satanic adventures in bikinis and jean shorts.

Like previous collections of Morris’ work, the narrative of the show is formed by a kind of social thought experiment, speculation on the outcomes of forcing people into extreme and isolated social situations. In the case of “Return To Doom Lagoon”, those outcomes involve amphibian sacrifice, tropical fruit worship and drinking cocktails out of human skulls.

The exhibition will double as a launch of a book, also titled “Return To Doom Lagoon” published by Watdafac and featuring the print work from the show.

Sean Morris

A fantastic Australian illustrator who has recently appeared on our radar is Mr Sean Morris. We couldn’t help being drawn to his bizarrely amusing imagery and crude subject matter so thought we’d find out what the hell goes on inside his head before we head to his show ‘Killer Abs Will Kill You’ in a few weeks time.

So Sean Morris, for those who don’t know, could you introduce yourself?
I’m a picture drawer from Perth, which is a haunted cowboy beach town in Western Australia.

Your work is both comical and sometimes crude, what inspires you to create images in this style?

There’s this small part of my brain which comes alive when I watch trash TV at 2am, or when I walk past someone in the street with an amazing rats tail or home-made tattoos. It’s the part that makes me want to shave my facial hair into flames and hang out at the worst suburban shopping mall in the world. I usually manage to repress that shit, but when I start drawing it completely takes over.
