In December 2015, I took a Polymer Photogravure workshop with Keith Taylor at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking. It was a great opportunity to test the process before diving right in, I plan to continue working in this media as it lends a lovely quality to the work. This is one of my test prints.
Interview with Alauna Yust, November 2015 http://www.kaxe.org/programs/areavoices.aspx
Many of my photographs are matched pairs, often two or three views of the same place just feet and minutes apart, though some are similar places though countries apart. The gap of time and place between the paired images is important to me: what ever seen or not seen, the gap is the nexus. In comparing place to place, and time and place, I am making an effort to see and interpret personal life events more clearly. Hyperopia 8/14 at 6:00:43:09 and 6:00:54 am is part of an ongoing series called 20/20 vision.
I am one of thirty artists including visual artists, writers, poets, multimedia artists working on a project with John Bauer, called What’s Left. This is a traveling exhibition, starting at the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids MN, and then on to venues big and small around the state.
Suicide is something that can affect any family, regardless of income level, race, geographic location, or any other social factors. This project aims to provide a space for participating artists and the broader community to reflect on the impact of suicide and explore the use of artistic expression in the processes of grieving and healing.
Our goal is to create a proactive dialogue on suicide and mental illness to break the stigma that surrounds both, in hopes that we can literally save lives. I am happy to tell you that we as a large community have already made progress before the exhibit even opens. School districts have become very proactive by training teachers about suicide through the Question, Persuade and Refer program, a support group for attempters and survivors has been formed and meeting regularly, and local foundations (Northland and Miller Dwan) have done site visits in hopes of investing in the exhibit.
My work Seeing Woods for Trees is in a traveling exhibition called A Walk in the Woods. this exhibition was curated by Laurel Reuter of the North Dakota Museum of Art. The exhibition schedule is available as well as the catalog of the work by some fabulous international artists here http://www.ndmoa.com/Rural-Arts.
I am please to be included in the Plains Museum’s annual themed exhibition and auction.For more information about Optical Illusions, please visit http://plainsart.org/exhibits/spring-gala-2014-art-auction-preview/morgan/
