Victoria Morris makes neon sculptural installations that seek to remove neon elements from their signage past by eliminating the wall and incorporating aspects of being seen in the round. Her work seeks to establish a referential connection between lighting and the desert landscape of her youth. A native Las Vegan, she graduated from Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts' visual art program before attending the College of Southern Nevada and then later the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for her BFA.
Previously, Victoria Morris created indie and small-press comics and zines. Her work ranged from humorous auto-biography, historical biography and analysis of pop-culture media works in a melenge of feminism and fannish concerns.
Victoria Morris currently lives and works in Chicago.
"Stand-out tales in the tome include Ivan Brunetti's on-the-money one-page strip "Drunks," Evan Dent's twisted "Hot Dog Millionaire" and the autobiographical-esque "Bus Date" by Tori Morris - but there's a whole lot to like here." - Review of "Drunk: A Comic About Bar Stories" from Creative Loafing: Charlotte
