http://www.DriscollBabcock.com DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost, Jenny Morgan’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. In this new body of work, Morgan pushes her transcendent figurative paintings to a larger scale, the pure magnitude of which amplifies the psychological intimacy of her work.
Despite the immediacy of her figures, Morgan’s deep insights into her subjects emerge slowly over time; their blurred features, sanded outlines, and unique coloration push her portraits toward a revelatory abstraction.
Morgan’s genre of realism is entirely her own. Technically intricate but experimental, ostensible yet mysterious, she obscures the physical to illuminate the spiritual. This constant search to reveal and express the spiritual is Morgan’s ongoing struggle—to express what she feels and knows, but can’t see. Morgan’s exhibition both acknowledges and offers tools for recognizing the invisible lives reflected within and around us.
