Last November, Malcolm Morley became the first winner of the Tate Gallery's prestigious new award, the Turner Prize, for the year.'s major contribution to
British art. In fact Morley has lived a reclusive life in America since 1957 and didn't arrive to collect his £10,000 prize.
He has the reputation of an outsider, a painter who doesn't fit the easy definitions of movements and styles in contemporary art. Critic Robert Hughes has called him 'the man whose methods have been relentlessly plundered by a generation of artists'. Morley began painting in the early 50s in Wormwood Scrubs where he was serving a sentence of three years for robbery. In the 60s he pioneered photo-realism in America; today he paints huge and vivid pictures, of jungles, exotic figures, strange totems, wild animals. Omnibus filmed Morley as he worked on his latest and, by his own account, possibly his last painting.
