About the Artist
Inspired by folklore, mythology & the human form, I use figural subjects to evoke a mysterious familiarity & haunting beauty. I build layers of antique & vintage paper collage around my original ink-washed drawings onto wooden panels. Shading is done with watercolor & inks, with fine details in colored pencil. I use traditional gold leaf as an homage to the byzantine style. I reference my favorite art styles & movements throughout history. Thematically I incorporate my love of the spirit as well as the strength of the feminine. I address symbolic, cultural, historical & spiritual themes with purposeful vagueness, allowing them to be familiar & curious to a variety of audiences. I want my work to be the beginning of a dialogue, not a confrontation. Kate Morgan holds a BFA in Photography from the Columbus College of Art & Design. Frustrated at the digital world for not being tactile enough, she turned to mixed media. Morgan is inspired by folklore, mythology & the human form. Layers of collage are mixed with her ink-washed drawings to address symbolic, cultural, historical & spiritual themes with purposeful vagueness, allowing them to be familiar to a variety of audiences.
