“Vous sont aveuglés, par la fiction que nous vivons:” New Paintings by Morgan Craig

Morgan Craig is moved by the now abandoned architectural surroundings of the late nineteenth and earl twentieth centuries. Craig finds a sense of austerity, beauty, and remembrance to the structures and spaces created for specific purposes, paying homage to that which has been abandoned or forgotten.

Rail stations, buildings and factories from an age of manufacturing and industry are instilled with a sense of beauty and peacefulness. As Craig states “I use perspective and color to portray these hall of melancholy as sanctuaries of light, renewal, and the forgotten.”

Craig received a M.F.A. in painting from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia. He has had solo exhibitions at: University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI (2006); Artworks Gallery, Cincinnati, OH (2006); Big Idea Gallery, Jim Thorpe, PA (2006); Penn State University, Altoona Campus, Altoona, PA (2005); and Redux Contemporary Art Center, Charleston, SC (2005). Recent group exhibitions include: Bettcher Gallery, Miami, FL (2005 and 2006); Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts (2006); South Bend Museum of Art, South Bend, IN (2006); Lawrence Asher Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2006); Seraphin Gallery, Philadelphia (2005); Florida State University (2005); Museum of Fine Arts, Tallahassee, FL (2005); Hartford Art Association, Havre de Grace, MD (2005); 1000 Walls Gallery, Chicago, IL (2005); University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA (2005) Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA (2005); OK Harris, New York , NY (2005) Cambridge Art Association, Cambridge, MA (2005); Murray State University, Murray, KY (2005); Gallery Katz, Boston, MA (2005);  Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, Toronto, Ontario (2004); Arrot Art Museum, Elmira, NY (2004); Slought Foundation, Philadelphia,  PA (2004); and L.I.P.A.
