‘Are ye dancin?…Are ye askin?’

 

by Cameron Morgan

 

 

Taking inspiration from spirited Scottish ceilidhs, shimmery 80s discos, the sway of South American tangos and the elegant drama of ballet, Cameron Morgan presents a collection of bold, playful pieces that explore the world of music and dance. Originally exhibited at the Theatr Brycheiniog in Wales, as an Unlimited commission, we are delighted to now display it in our Glasgow gallery. This collection showcases Morgan’s diversity and humour – with dynamically posed figures and painted tributes to the now-vintage technologies of hi-fis and tapes.

 

So… Are ye dancin?

Visiting hours: 11am-5pm Wednesday – Saturday | 31 July – 3 September | Trongate 103

Access: Our gallery space at Trongate 103 is wheelchair accessible. There is an accessible toilet.

We are delighted to be welcoming these paintings back home to Glasgow, and into the Project Ability gallery! This is a unique opportunity for our visitors to see this body of work, made pre-pandemic, by the multi talented Cameron Morgan. A wide range of dancing and music related subject matter can be found throughout this show, making it a joy to experience and a lot of fun too. Morgan has used his unique creativity to produce some brilliant textures and patterns in these paintings, proving that even the most talented of artists can continue to find new ways to grow and develop their practice. With the help of Project Ability tutor and fellow artist Jason Pyper Davis, Cameron devised the theme for this show along with the concept and subject for each painting. Some time after the exhibition opened, Jason went to speak to Cameron about the show. You can hear them in conversation below, it is well worth a listen with some fascinating insight into the creative mind of Cameron Morgan.

 

Listen below to Cameron in conversation with Jason, discussing the concept behind the paintings,the painting process and his artistic practice as a whole:
