Clare Morgan has always been fascinated by the human form, seeking to explore the fragility and instability of the human experience juxtaposed against the opportunity for growth. She is interested in the renewed sense of perspective that can be born out of significant events.
Her work illustrates key moments in her own journey through the diagnosis of a life threating illness, lifesaving treatment and the process of piecing life back together again in the knowledge that we only have the illusion of control.
Her recent artworks use the imagery of falling and fragmented figures that come alive with colour, sometimes incorporating a ‘bubble’ over the figures head to represent a separation from the ‘real world’. Clare is reflecting our volunrability but most importantly her imagery acts as a celebration of the human spirit that she has witnessed in the many people she has encountered with a similar story.
