CLAIRE MORGAN. Repetitive and Precise.

So, again, I have stumble across another totally amazing 
installation/sculpture based artist.

I mainly work in mixed media and acrylic on flat surfaces but after seeing the unparalleled impact that you can have by filling an entire space with an idea, I really want to try something large scale and three dimensional....

As soon as I have the space of course....

creates sculptures and installations involving painstakingly repetitive and precise processes.

Pay close attention to the materials that she is using (listed underneath each photo).  What looks insignificantly small may actually be fruit flies or dandelion seeds....

She must be a very patient person.

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast. She attended University of Ulster and Northumbria University where she achieved a first class degree in Sculpture. She is now based in London.
