Morgan Stokes On Becoming 2, from the series Skin, is one of two copper and brass works which are studies into metals as something permeable and constantly ageing. Morgan says of this work, “Here I have patinated each panel using the same process yet each appears a different colour despite the process being near identical. The title refers to the concept of becoming, or process philosophy, where life can only be understood as something constantly changing.”
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.”
