Morgan Stokes Exposing Painting, from the series Skin, is exploring and reinterpreting the medium of painting. Morgan says of this work, “For some of my earlier works, I have substituted canvas for silk in order to draw attention to the physical makeup of painting – that is, supporting stretcher bars. This work is a continuation of this idea, exploring the frame as an element of painting, and its compositional potential.”
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.”
