"Ma$terz of War"
Mixed Media Installation

Coming from a family dominated by male military figures, Morgan's work reflects her feelings of war and divinity by incorporating her family history, mythological cautionary tales, and concepts derived from alchemy. The aesthetic she uses includes a mixture of metal and plastic gold, silver, and copper. With paint, wire, beads, foil, fabric, and various strings, she aims to create the illusion of wealth and power with real bullets and objects purchased at the dollar store.

She is particularly interested in how her work and role as a maker can evoke social consciousness through the association of symbols. Modern aristocracy, US military forces, incarceration and the divine become seeds of communication and all coexist within the vocabulary of her work.
