If you are in Philadelphia, check out the last weekend of Peter Morgan's Fellowship Exhibition, All Aboard at the Philadelphia Clay Studio. Here are images from the show. Look for an interview with the artist on this blog later in the week. The installation explores the idea of place and the nature of representation with Peter's playful use of scale and humor. Also included are paintings that reference the pieces in the exhibition. To view more of the work at the Clay Studio website, click the link imbedded in the title of the exhibition.
Peter Morgan: All Aboard
The 2011-2012 Evelyn Shapiro Foundation Fellowship ExhibitionOctober 4 through October 28, 2012
My work is an exploration of issues of perception and representation and how these concerns mold our understanding of the world. I am interested in both actual representations and cultural perceptions of the way things are and what makes each significant. The work examines how much of what we know of the world is through illustrations and representation rather than from personal experience and the difference between “real” versus simulated experiences.
