Jenny Morgan has been both a cover of our print edition and our new Hyperreal book, and we are excited about her newest show, "All We Have Is Now," opening at Driscoll Babacock in NYC on May 14. As the gallery notes, "This new series of paintings present amorphous, yet graphically stark figures rendered in a richly saturated prismatic array of colors. Centered on themes of life, death, and rebirth, Morgan’s works question how we relate to our past and challenge us to live in the present." We can't wait to see the whole new body of work!

All effects for this were achieved without a computer. All done with practical special effects."
