Employing imagery based in the forest, such as tangled undergrowth, spider webs and the architecture of fire lookouts, Donald Morgan takes advantage of the interstices between the two and three-dimensional. The inter-related sculptures and paintings function together as a hard-edged geometric landscape, creating an ersatz wilderness engendered by temporal and spatial shifts, the confluence of warmth and coldness, and interplay between the flat and the volumetric as well as the near and the far.
Morgan has shown nationally and internationally ranging from venues such as High Desert Test Sites in Joshua Tree, CA to Rocksbox Fine Art in Portland, Oregon. He received an MFA in Painting and Sculpture from the Art Center College of Design, and is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Oregon.
