Earlier in the year Cameron Morgan received an Unlimited award to enable him to continue his artistic practice while in lockdown.
For those of us who know Cameron Morgan’s artistic practice, it comes as no surprise that a world pandemic has not slowed him down one bit. As with many Project Ability and other artists around Scotland and the world, Cameron hasn’t had access to his studio since mid-March when Project Ability closed. This has put an abrupt pause on his ceramic making, which has been a big focus of his work over the last several years.
However, Morgan has a multidisciplinary practice that has served him well over lockdown! He has long enjoyed watercolour painting, and has his own distinct and wonderful way with this medium. He decided to work with a brand new theme, outside in his garden, where he was visited by mentor, friend, artist and Project Ability tutor Jason Pyper Davis.
The banknotes Morgan has made during lockdown create a beautiful body of work. With the artist’s usual dose of humour and oversized scale, these features create a wonderful juxtaposition to the delicacy of the paint and ink work. They have been painted on Fabriano 300gsm watercolour paper, giving them a great texture and weight.
These paintings are available for purchase via this link.
