He majored in fine art and modern history in UK. Often considered a conceptual artist, the more you look at Morley’s painting, the more you discover and contemplate. As Morley said “Word is Image”, keynote of his work is a text. He focuses on the fact that text not only has a meaning but also a form. Though a simple and calm tone of monochrome, images or texts are gradually revealed as you approach. His monochrome work becomes more sensible while the process of recognition of standardized code and information on the surface of his work is induced. His painting thus blends the conceptual character in the rational realm of text with the fantastical realm of the image. He remains objective and factual by retaining the original type face and layout when using sources.
He inspired by poetic beauty of oriental pavilions and palaces, and create a “Pavilion” series. Names of pavilions - Dok Rak Jung(獨樂亭) and Pal Young Roo (八詠樓) once again suggesting a gap between visuality and language. Symbols, by meaning, indicate paintings or the pavilion in memory, but it is an in between reality of cultural, linguistic, time and space gaps. Only myriad traces remain in order to continuously become other meanings.
