For many years she has worked with paintings, drawings, textiles, and installations, and her figurative universe is often characterised by a surrealist idiom and recurring motifs. Particularly central to her art is the form of the dress, which assumes a profound symbolism. This motif often appears in Morland's paintings and drawings and is further explored in her textile pieces and her three-dimensional works made of stones, pine cones, mussels, and other natural materials. Recently, the artist has also created richly detailed embroideries of animals and insects on dresses, a subtle reminder of the major environmental challenges we are facing today.
