In the Magazine: Jenny Morgan

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 08, 2014
Adding something fresh and necessary to the genre of portraiture may seem impossible, but in that realm, Jenny Morgan is crushing it. Don’t label her paintings figurative or photoreal. Her extraordinary skills for rendering the human figure are beside the point. Layers of the unconscious are revealed in the reductive abstraction of her portraits...

Jenny Morgan "How To Find A Ghost" @ Driscoll Babcock, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 14, 2013
DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost, 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.

Jenny Morgan's Personal Portraits

Erotica // Friday, September 13, 2013
'The figure is simply the most compelling subject matter for me, it feels natural and with the ebb and flow of my style and maturity, I find new ways to approach the portrait. It has taken me years to break through walls that were developed when I was younger- ideals about the tradition of painting and the preciousness of realism...'

In Illustration: Jenny Morgan's Avatars

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 15, 2011
In utilizing the figure, Jenny Morgan facilitates a correspondence between souls. The figures resemble avatars in their presence and disdain for artificial attachment to the contours, rather than the spirit, of the body.
