Framed in dark wood

Exploring the concept of what he calls the ‘virtual gaze’, Morgan Stokes Investigates the painting as an object, opposed to an image.

Despite their appearance Stokes’ works are a rumination on the virtual world, each a response to our escalating entrapment within our screens. Approaching works from a post-internet school of thought with a post-minimalist sensibility, Stokes’ works seek to explore the physicality of painting as well as the way we perceive image itself.

Says Morgan of his work: “I am interested in the “virtual gaze”, how we now view the world through a screen. I investigate the physicality of paintings through the subtly of material and texture, exploring the premise of the painting by breaking down its elements: paint, canvas and timber.”
