Carolyn Morgan – Visual Artist
Carolyn’s art work communicates ideas and stories filtered through her imagination. Her work often reflects the struggle between the industrialized/ technological world, and the natural world. A person, a place, a leaf, a seedpod, a phrase in a book, or a fragment of conversation, can trigger a torrent of visual images that will condense into an artwork. Carolyn enjoys the challenge of working with many different materials: textiles, clay, metal, paint, print and enamels. The medium and method she chooses to create her art is dictated by the demands of the visual story created in her imagination.
Carolyn’s favourite place, outside of her birth province of Newfoundland and Labrador, is France. In the summers of 1991, 1997 and 2008 she journeyed to France to study painting ‘en plein air’ with French artist Jean Claude Roy and Newfoundland artist Ilse Hughes. Carolyn has kept her art practice ‘new’ by continuing to participate in art workshops from local, national, and international artists.
In August of 2014 Carolyn exhibited her art work in a solo show at The Five Island Art Gallery in Tors Cove NL. The multi-media show was titled, Art is for Apple and visually explored the mythology of the apple.
Carolyn`s art work has been exhibited in group shows at the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador, The Rooms, NL, Sir Wilfred Grenfell Art Gallery, NL, the AANL, The Eastern Edge Gallery, NL as well as the Arts Centre in Port Moody, B.C. In 2010, Carolyn was invited to show her wearable art creation titled, ‘Buzz Off ’, at an international, juried show in Port Moody, B.C. She also created a new art work for this show, titled ‘Olympic Support ’, and this art work won the runner-up award in the Olympic category. Her sculptural work has been purchased by the Provincial Art Bank, her art figures (dolls), enamel work and paintings have been purchased for private collections in Canada, and the U.S.A.
