‘Revisiting’ Claire Morgan

It has been exactly a year since I last wrote about Claire Morgan‘s works and it is kind of eerie that I would think of the same artist unconsciously at exactly the same time one year later.

Claire Morgan’s artworks always seem to ‘freeze’ and capture a particular moment in time. I still love to see items suspended in mid-air. If I stand still without moving, it really feels like time stopped for that special moment.

This year it seems Claire has managed to capture the moment on paper. Interesting, though I prefer 3D to 2 D.

To Woo You (Residues of the taxidermy process, pencil, watercolour on paper)

Here is the End of All Things (Thistle seeds, bluebottles, a taxidermy barn owl, nylon, lead, acrylic)

A beautiful 4-part installation that looks like the owl flew through the cubes of time.

Pedestal (Dandelion seeds, a taxidermy heron, nylon, lead, acrylic)

Everything remains serene and melancholic as with her signature works, mixed with that touch of darkness that’s always as mystifying as preserving life after death.

Quoting Claire Morgan,

“My work is about our relationship with the rest of nature, explored through notions of change, the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us. For me, creating seemingly solid structures or forms from thousands of individually suspended elements has a direct relation with my experience of these forces. There is a sense of fragility and a lack of solidity that carries through all the sculptures. I feel as if they are somewhere between movement and stillness, and thus in possession of a certain energy. ” (Read more here!)

Beautifully said.
