MORGAN ELLEN ACTON
BANKSIDE HULLS LANE
(NEXT TO TRAGO)
Morgan Ellen Acton is a fine artist whose work presents itself through many a medium. For her, making artwork is somewhat of an experience, an extension of and a reflection on one’s human condition. Morgan’s work is the product of the relationship she encounters with materials. No matter the medium, Morgan’s main focus is on the process of the work, rather than the product. The balance of control between her and the medium in hand is what most compels her to practice art. Her works’ narratives are drawn from places of identity and self. This translates into her four main objectives: line, form, shape and space.
Morgan doesn’t feel the need to specify a main medium; for her, placing oneself in a pigeon hole only feels like a restriction, rather than an achievement. To her having a multi dimensional art practice feels more expansive and progressive and, therefore is more enjoyable.
