Morgan Stokes Depicting Transience, from the series Skin, is exploring and reinterpreting the medium of painting. Morgan says of this work, “I am interested in the ageing of material, how time affects matter. Bleaching is a essentially a decaying, and I was interested in the painterly effect this process has on paint and canvas.”
Morgan says of this series, “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.”
