Geoff Morten’s work centered directly on his search for an identity. As an adoptee, he used figuration as the basic means for exploring his issues of isolation and alienation . This exhibition demonstrates how Geoff used himself as model for all the male figures which appear in his work. One of the early drawings show a strong figure standing defiantly, chin thrust forward, shoulders squared, fists clenched – ready to take on the world.
