Claire Morgan

The painstakingly repetitive and precise process as well as the challenges presented by the nature of her chosen materials are an important part of Claire Morgan’s work.  Fresh strawberries, taxidermied crow and fox, as well as rabbit meat are not the conventional mediums with which artists choose to express themselves, however, for Claire Morgan the continued exploration of the techniques used for her work are highly consequential in her practice.  The first piece I have pictured here is called Fluid, it is one of several pieces by the artist in which she uses fresh strawberries because of their color, transience, and bodily connotations.  It is the contrast of the apparent extreme fragility of organic matter and the seeming strength found in geometry and order that the artist enjoys about her work with strawberries.  The second piece (pictured third) is called Fantastic Mr. Fox, depicting a fox within a box of shards of garbage bags and rotting meat.  The production is a commentary about how animals interact with the box that we humans have constructed around them.  Through manipulating the context in which a fox, garbage bags, and rotting meat are found the piece prompts people to reconsider these day to day materials and occurrences.  Please click on the pictures to see the pieces in greater detail.
