Morgan Stokes A Poem for Seeing, from the series Skin, is made from layered silk organza. Morgan says of this work, “I was interested in how the fabrics interact with one another and the effect light plays on perception. I applied gentle pastel marks on each layer to help draw attention to this.”
Morgan says of this series, “In my work I explore and reinterpret the medium of painting, and more recently, sculpture. From a conceptual approach, I aim to dissect painting into its discrete elements, such as linen, paint or stretcher bars, to enquire into what makes a painting in the digital age. By creating formal studies into material, I explore what I call the ‘virtual gaze’, that is, how our mode of perception is shifting as our lives are increasingly mediated by the screen. In my show ‘Skin’, I interpret painting as a metaphor for personhood and subsequently surface as a metaphor for skin.”
