ARTIST IN RESIDENCE @ STACKS Project Space + Sydney East Art Walk

1 -10 February 2019 •  ARTIST IN RESIDENCE •  STACKS Project Space Program

Louise Morgan
1 February – 10 February  2019
Sydney East Art Walk, Saturday 9 February, 12 - 4 pm
PROJECT: In some other countries rivers have rights. 
Expanding on the artists ongoing body of work focused on water & carbon, this latest project delves into issues around Australian freshwater sources and meteorological phenomena through an investigative drawing practice that combines experimental drawing and informal cartographies.
Louise Morgan is a Sydney-based emerging artist whose contemporary drawing practice engages in experimental drawing and installation. The core of her practice is informed by ecology and a desire to create works that seek to address the cultural and philosophical issues that determine humankind's influence on the planet and its various environments. She is a MFA research graduate (2017) from the National Art School and has previously been awarded the Mark Henry Cain Memorial Scholarship (2016) and selected for the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts’ ‘Hatched’ exhibition in 2015. 

Thank you to the lovely team at STACKS for giving me the opportunity to work through some ideas in your space. Here's some snippets of what I got up to for those of you who missed the opportunity to drop by during the Sydney East Art Walk event. (I've been particularly excited to have the space to test out expanding my 'Rain' drawings to a much bigger scale). See more images from this residency on my instagram account - @llemorga
