Morgan Craig- Select works

February 4 @ 1:00 pm - February 28 @ 6:00 pm


Craig is known for large scale works that document adventures into spaces across the globe few know of let alone witness in person, from abandoned warehouses to amusement parks. Luscious paintings that depict in detail the layers of time on surfaces once in use and now forgotten. The artist believes architectural structures act both as repositories and vehicles for memory by profoundly influencing culture and identity and by providing a tangible framework through which facets of a society can be expressed. Consequently, he was inspired to build a body of work dealing with how identity is influenced by the types of architecture present in a given landscape. His work takes into account the forgotten factory, asylum or prison.

“Neglected, ignored or often instilling rancor in the public, these buildings paradoxically offer one of the most scintillating of subject matter: how beautiful the bitter pill,” he said. “My work is not merely a method of documentation, but a visual forum where one may question what it is about these edifices that instills such emotion in people. “While evidence of these past or present-day difficulties may not be pleasant, I feel it imperative that societies realize their impact on the past, present and future concepts of identity and history,” he continued.

Craig, who lives and works in Philadelphia, received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and a teaching certificate from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, as well as a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and has received numerous awards, including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, and a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Fellowship.
